A Sold-Out Client Seminar in Oklahoma

Trish Hatley

Mike Shiflett and Marc Miller, both Freese and Nichols geotechnical professionals, along with Brad Kirksey, one of Freese and Nichols’ dams professionals, presented a seminar on Dam Safety to a sold-out crowd on September 30. The seminar took place at the Oklahoma Water Resources Board (OWRB) with more than 50 people in attendance. Attendees included public sector employees and consultants from across the state.

The six-hour class included presentations on types of dams and inspections, risk assessments, geotechnical investigations, monitoring and instrumentation, as well as case studies on upgrades and repairs on past projects. The presenters kept the audience engaged and had a valuable question-and-answer session.
