by John Z. Gibson, Washington Water Power Co, Spokane, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Hydraulic Engineering


After a 1987 inspection of the Cabinet Gorge Dam, Part 12 consultants contracted by Washington Water Power (a private utility based in Spokane, Washington) made several recommendations in their inspection report. In response to these recommendations, three stability analyses and several monitoring and investigation programs were implemented to determine whether the Cabinet Gorge Dam is stable. Five years after the 1987 inspection, Washington Water Power (WWP) reviewed the stability analyses and their corresponding recommendations in order to evaluate how future stability analyses should be administered.
