Dam engineering consulting

Our teams combine technical excellence with stakeholder collaboration to find the right solution for your dam engineering challenges.

Dams and embankments need technically sound and innovative solutions to work properly, without posing risks to the communities they are in. But litigation risks, community opposition, and the potential for exorbitant costs for the right solution can put you in a tough spot. How do you find the specialized engineering expertise to ensure dams and embankments don’t fail and cause dire consequences to communities? 

At Haley & Aldrich, we know the impacts — both positive and negative — dams can have on communities. Dam engineering consulting requires technical excellence, and, as importantly, an ability to understand and build trust with stakeholders, regulators, and community activists. Through our ability to deeply listen, collaborate, and find common ground, we ensure all needs and desired outcomes are incorporated into our proposed solutions. 

Our engineers and consultants take a proactive stance to ensure clear communication with internal and external project stakeholders, mitigating concerns and fostering a sense of unity as we work together to solve your dam, embankment, and hydraulic structure challenges. And when differences of opinion emerge, the Haley & Aldrich teams take the time to explain varying project components and approaches to residents, agencies, and abutters.
