Reservoirs and Dams

WWE has conducted dam and reservoir planning, permitting, water rights/operations studies, design and rehabilitation assignments throughout the West for over 50 years.  We maintain a close working relationship with the Colorado Office of the State Engineer and have a strong working knowledge of the Rules and Regulations for Dam Safety and Dam Construction, not only in Colorado but also in other states. WWE’s work ranges from small augmentation ponds to impoundments with thousands of acre-feet. A specialty of WWE’s is retrofitting existing low-head dams to enhance public safety.

WWE has provided these services for more than 50 dams and reservoirs.  We have designed and provided construction-phase services for numerous lakes and gravel pit reservoirs where minimization of water loss was critical.  Our company prides itself on designs that are economical to construct and that receive swift regulatory approval.
