New Case Study: Automating Dam Monitoring at California’s New Bullards Bar Dam

New Bullards Bar Dam in California was built more than 50 years ago to reduce flood risk and generate clean hydropower. It plays a crucial role in providing a reliable water supply to the surrounding communities in Yuba County.

Driven by a commitment to innovation and public safety, Yuba Water Agency set forth to adopt a digital automated survey and monitoring system for the dam. The goal: real-time insights for quick detection of abnormal deformations, improving dam safety during inclement weather and seismic events.

Bentley’s IoT and digital twin technologies helped Yuba replace and modernize their dam monitoring system, optimizing operations and preventing potential loss of life and billions of dollars in damage.

The new case study featuring this project is now available.
