Agenda

1. Information by Chairman
    (i) Meetings and attendance: Two meetings were held from 8.30-12.00 and 14.00-17.30 on May 31, 2011; 20 committee members including 4 substitutes and
          13 observers were present.
    (ii) Committee members: no changes since 2010; the Committee includes 31 countries.
    (iii) Report on main items discussed at Meeting of Committee Chairmen of May 30 regarding status of technical committees and ICOLD bulletins. The bulletin
          on reservoirs and seismicity will be published in summer 2011. The French translation of Bulletin 62 approved in 2008 has been completed. The revised
          Bulletin 72 approved in 2010 has been finalised and will be translated. It will be published as Bulletin 148. The position paper on Dam Safety and
          Earthquakes approved in 2010 will be translated. All documents are available on the ICOLD web page.
    (iv) ICOLD Congress in Kyoto in 2012:

2. Selected Reports from Committee Members
   (i) Canada: A short presentation was made by S. Rigbey on the new probabilistic seismic hazard analysis of dams in British Colombia, Canada.
   (ii) Chile: A presentation was made by G. Noguera on seismic hazard and seismic design of dams in Chile.
   (iii) China: A presentation was made by Chen Houqun on lessons learnt from the seismic behaviour of dams during the May 12, 2008 Wenchuan earthquake in
          China.
   (iv) France: A presentation was made by M. Lino on the proposed seismic design guideline in France.
   (v) Japan: A presentation was made by N. Matsumoto on the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and dams. 400 dams were inspected after the M=9.0 March 11, 2011
          Tohoku earthquake. 40 dams were damaged and Fujinuma-ike embankment dam, with a height of 18.5 m and a reservoir volume of 1.5 Mm3 failed. 8
          people were killed. Strong motion data were recorded at dams from the main shock and several aftershocks. In the Fukushima NPP area 2 dams could not
          be inspected and at 2 dams the spillway gates were opened.
   (vi) Russia: A presentation was made by V. Bronshteyn on the seismic analysis of the powerhouse of Sayana-Shushenskaya HPP.
   (vii) Thailand: An activity report was distributed.
   (viii) A summary report on the May 12, 2008 Wenchuan earthquake in China (UNDP project on seismic aspects of dams) prepared by IWHR, Beijing was
          distributed to the Committee members prior to the Annual Meeting in Lucerne.
   (ix) All powerpoint presentations and related documents received will be made available to the Committee members.
                                                                                                                                                              B – p.   3
3. Update of pending Documents
   (a) ICOLD Bulletin 72 (new Bulletin148): It shall be added that the seismic hazard parameters for the 10,000 year return period safety evaluation earthquake
       (SEE) ground motion, when determined probabilistically, are the mean values. Furthermore, it has to be realised that the new Bulletin 148 will have
       considerable impact on the seismic design of new dams and the seismic safety evaluation of existing dams. If the SEE is determined based on earthquake
       scenarios then the 84% fractile values of the seismic hazard parameters shall be used. This deterministic approach is feasible when there is sufficient
       information on the active faults in the project region is available. In cases where inadequate information is available on active or potentially active faults is
       available then a probabilistic seismic hazard analysis is needed with mean values of the seismic hazard parameters.
   (b) Position Paper on Dam Safety and Earthquakes: In view of the Tohoku earthquake where 8 people were killed due to the failure of an embankment dam, the
       introduction of the Position Paper has to be adjusted as it is mentioned there that no loss of lives have occurred due to the failure of a dam during
       earthquakes.

4. Status of Terms of Reference 2009-2013
The status of activities is as follows:
  (i)      Lessons learnt from the Wenchuan earthquake on the seismic safety of dams: A presentation was prepared by Chen H., which shall serve as a basis for a
           related paper. It is also necessary that important papers published by Chinese researchers be made available in English.
  (ii)     Seismic aspects of RCC dams: (see (i), additional analyses will be performed for the 132 m high Shapei RCC arch dam in China)
  (iii)    Seismic aspects of CFRD dams including dams with asphalt core and surface membranes: (a) CFRD: A working group with Columbia, Japan, USA,
           China and Switzerland was formed; (b) Asphalt core dams and surface membranes: A working group with Norway, Japan and China was formed;
  (iv)     Interpretation of seismic data obtained from dams: Seismic data recorded at dam sites were received from Iran. A large number of data were recorded
           from the Tohoku earthquake and the aftershocks. They will be compiled by the corresponding organisations and it is expected that they will be made
           available before the next annual meeting. Therefore, analysis and incorporation of these data the revised draft prepared by Matsumoto will take about two
           years. These activities shall be coordinated by Matsumoto and Babbitt. Data from Indonesia discussed during the 2010 Committee Meeting are not
           suitable.

5. Coordination with other Technical Committees
    (i)     Contact with computational committee: G. Zenz: Subject: Nonlinear dynamic analysis of concrete and embankment dams;
    (ii)    Contact with embankment dam committee: K. Hoeg: Subject: Asphalt core rockfill dams;
    (iii)   Contact with dam monitoring committee: I. Landon-Jones: Subject: Seismic monitoring and instrumentation of dams; and

2. ITEMS (a), (b) and (c) of the agenda
       The minutes of the Hanoi meeting, which were distribute to members immediately after that meeting, were approved without any restriction.
       Mr. Pietrangeli, from Italy, new appointed member of the Committee was introduced to members. Reference was made to applications for
       membership that are being considered by ICOLD board.
       Email addresses of members present to the meeting were confirmed or updated.
3. Presentations and discussions on proposed bulletin contents.
       Following the major chapter subdivisions (show above) agreed in Hanoi, each chapter coordinator presented the proposed chapter sub-
       headings and additional thoughts about contents. These were discussed by members as follows:
       Chapter 2 - LARGE CAPACITY SPILLWAYS
           Mr. Machado, from Brazil, chapter coordinator presented chapter sub-division proposition including observations and additions proposed by
           S. P. Sen from India and C. Fouladi, from Iran. With the exception of a proposed orifice spillway, which was not considered applicable to
           large spillway outflows (and was replaced by “bottom outlets”) the proposition was approved.
       Chapter 3 – HIGH HEAD SPILLWAYS
           Ms. Guo, from China, chapter coordinator, was not present to the meeting, and no information on progress has been received along the
           year. The Chairman will contact Ms. Guo to see what are the possibilities of her active participation, since it is apparent that she is very busy
           with her professional affairs. The decision on this chapter sub-itemisation was put in a hold position.
                                                                                                                                               C–p4
Chapter 4 - STEPPED SPILWAYS
   Mr Lejeune, from Belgium, chapter coordinator, presented chapter sub-division proposition and commented the criterion used for its
   organisation. The presented issues were discussed by members. Mr. Pinheiro, from Portugal, mentioned cases developed in his country
   concerning stepped spillways buit over embankment dams. He distributed information to members by email. Mr. Schleiss from Switzerland
   mentioned studies done in Swiss laboratories. The propositions presented were approved.
Chapter 5 – LABYRINTH AND PK SPILLWAYS
   Mr. Van Wyk from South Africa, has developed the contents of this chapter with Mr. Taquet from France. He referred the issue of labyrinth
   spillway design to an ASCE publication issued in 2003 that represents the state of the art for the design of these structures. He said he
   intends to use this information as a base for our bulletin, referring to it but not reproducing its contents and illustrating the description with
   recent major successful works such as the Maguga spillway in Swaziland. PK spillways will be dealt with by B. Taquet (who was not present
   at the meeting and was represented by F. Delorne, from France). Both issues were discussed by members and the propositions were
   approved.
Chapter 6 - TUNNEL, SHAFT AND VORTEX SPILLWAYS
   This chapter was not assigned to a permanent coordinator in Hanoi. Ms. Guo from China, as given a provisional responsibility but could not
   take care of it. It was decided, during this meeting, to assign this chapter to H-M Kjellesvig, from Norway.
Chapter 7 - DEBRIS AND HIGH SEDIMENT FLOW THROUGH SPILLWAYS
   This chapter, which was assigned to H. Horlacher from Germany, should be organised not repeat the contents of the bulletin Environmental
   Hydraulics, prepared under Mr. Horlacher, in the previous phase of the Hydraulics for Dams committee. There is no formal proposition at
   this moment for its contents. The issue has been extensively discussed during the meeting, considering that the Environmental bulletin dealt
   with debris and sediment at the reservoir, and our task now is to deal with spillway structures that has to pass debris and sediment to
   downstream areas. It is a very difficult issue and there is no established solution for that. It has been decided during the meeting that Bob
   Ward, from Australia, who has been collaborating with Horlacher, will coordinate the development of this chapter.
Chapter 8 - SPECIAL PROBLEMS OF SPILLWAYS IN VERY COLD CLIMATE
   This chapter must be prepared by an engineer from Northern countries that face the problem of very cold climate: Canada, Russia,
   Scandinavian countries and Iceland. Our Canadian and Russian members were not present at the meeting and Ms. Kjellesvig from Norway
   was already assigned another chapter task. It was decided that the Chairman will contact the Canadian and Russian members and verify the
   possibility of a representative from Iceland (who recently built a major spillway in Karanjukar Dam) to help the committee on this issue.
Chapter 9 - PHYSICAL AND MATHEMATICAL MODELING AS DESIGN TOOLS
   Mr. Lindell from the USA presented the proposition of chapter itemisation and a draft of the chapter contents. This material has been
   already sent to members in early March. The members discussed the contents and approved the propositions presented.
Chapter 10 - STRATEGIES TO OBTAIN SAVINGS IN SPILLWAY DESIGN
   Mr. Machado presented the proposition of chapter sub-division and further explanations on the criterion used for its formulation, prepared
   by Mr. Fouladi from Iran, who could not be present at this meeting. The issue has been extensively discussed since it involves very subjective
   appreciations on economics and strategies of design and constructions. However the propositions were approved for further development
   and recognised as containing the essence of the problems involved.
                                                                                                                                                  C–p5
4. Programming of the work to be carried out until the Kyoto meeting.
       The meeting in Kyoto, Japan, will be held in June 2012. It was agreed that by that date we must have the full bulletin organisation defined in
       final form, and most of the text written in draft form. To achieve this the following control dates have been established:
           By 1st October 2011 all chapter subdivisions must be finalised and distributed to all members.
           By 1st April 2012 about 80% of the texts, in draft format, must be completed and distributed to all members.
       It will be the responsibility of the Chairman to receive prepared material from members and distribute to all members.
5. Review of received information (technical papers and similar material)
       There was no new material was presented by members, who concentrated their effort in the preparation of chapters.
6. Other subjects
       There was no additional subject offered to discussions, besides the above referred issues.
7. Conclusion
       The Chairman thanked the participation and the effort developed by members and emphasised the need of achieving the goals defined in the
       programme for the year until the Kyoto meeting.

1. Opening remarks
   JP Tournier, chairman, welcomes everybody and particularly a new member, Norway (H. Saxegaard). He informs the members of the schedule of the day
   with the different breaks.
2. Minutes of the previous meeting
   The minutes of the previous meeting held in Hanoï, May 24 2010 are approved.
3. Additions to the agenda
   Following the meeting of the technical committee presidents, JP Tournier adds the following point: problem of overlapping subjects with other committee.
4. Bulletins on Internal Erosion
   JJ Fry and R Bridle made the status report of the bulletins. The part 1 (Internal Erosion of Dams, Dikes and their Foundations) is well advanced. Technical
   presentation and discussions. Comments are needed, if possible, before the end of September 2011. The word version of the part 1 will be sent to the
   members. Then, a final draft, more practical and concise, will be transmit before the end of the year. The part 2 is less advanced; the template is done and
   a first draft will be prepared for the next meeting.
5. Geotextiles in dams
   D. Paul made the status report on that subject and resumed the results of the            questionnaire sent to the national committees (11 replies received). It
   was decided to update the Bulletin 55. D. Paul will lead that “new” bulletin. We seek additional responses and case histories. We will take into account the
   FEMA manual on Geotextiles in Embankment Dams (D. Paul will inform us on the status of that manual) and also the European Standards UNI-EN 13254
   – 2001. A first draft of that bulletin is proposed for March 2012.
6. Asphaltic core dams
   P. Tschernutter and E. Peloquin made the status of that subject. The table of contents of the new bulletin is presented and discussed in details. A
   questionnaire asking for different experiences will be prepared. An historical review will be made. Details will be added on supporting shell, abrupt
   abutment, seismicity, climate, floods, .. With Austria, Canada, Norway, support is also required from China and Brazil.
7. Seepage and Groundwater Control of Embankment Dams
   J. Laasonen presented a proposal for a table of contents for such a bulletin. Technical discussions and several comments on “overlapping” with other
   bulletins, particularly with the part 2 of Internal Erosion in Embankment Dams. However, the need for practical bulletin in that subject is clear, such as :
   How to measure seepage? What could be a recommendation? J. Laasonen will meet with JJ Fry and R Bridle (and the European Group) to clarify what
   subjects will be treated in the part 2 of Internal Erosion and in that new bulletin. We will have a more detailed proposal at our next meeting.
8. Draft FEMA Manual : Filters for Embankments Dams
   We are waiting for an update status of that manual. So Spain is not yet prepared for a proposal on that subject.
8. Optimizing External Slopes and Seepage
   Iran said that a proposal will be prepared for the next meeting on “Updating Design”.
9. Others subjects
   - overlapping between committees: JP Tournier said that at the last technical committee presidents meeting, some statements made during the work
   summary indicate that there is some overlapping between committee such as : concrete joints of the slab for CFRD by the Concrete Dam Committee (our
   committee have just published a new bulletin on CFRD), numerical analysis of Asphaltic Core Dams by Seismicity Committee (new bulletins on Numerical
   analysis for Dams and also for Asphaltic Core Dams). JP Tournier will have some discussions with the concerned committee and also with the Office of
   ICOLD. He asked to be aware of such overlapping and to report as soon as possible.

The Committee on Dam Safety (CODS) is now at the end of the first year of its extended term 2010 - 2012. The Committee has completed almost all
tasks as required by its present Terms of Reference and concentrated its discussions in Lucerne on reviewing these areas related to safety of dams
that should become the priority issues if the Committee gets re-appointed in 2002.

Progress against Committee Terms of Reference

All terms, except one, on the current list have been completed. The only exception (preparation of informational and educational document
concerning risk management of dams) will be completed before the current Committee’s term expires in 2012.
Bulletin on Dam Safety Management

The text of the Bulletin was submitted to ICOLD Central Office in January of 2011 for the consideration at the 79th Annual Meeting in Lucerne.

Review of Dam Safety Legislation and Regulation

J. Polacek, leader of the Working Group on the topic (N. Humar, G. Holm-Midttomme, F. de Gennaro Castro, H-U. Siebert, members) provided the
information about the analysis of responses received from CODS members on this subject. The Group has already received 32 responses to the
questionnaire sent to the CODS members and 3 other countries belonging to ICOLD. In addition, another 20 questionnaires will be sent to other
ICOLD members not represented in the CODS. A detailed plan how to complete the analysis, perform quality checks on gathered information and
prepare draft report was presented. According to the plan the final draft of the report will be available to the CODS members prior to the 80th Annual
Meeting in Kyoto.
                                                                                                                                       H – p.   3
J. Polacek also presented a proposal from the Group to continue the work after the Kyoto meeting. Expanded scope of work would enable the Group
to provide general recommendation with respect to legal and regulatory aspects of dam safety.

Areas of interest for next term

The following areas of interest and potential items for the next term of the CODS have been identified and discussed at the meeting:

   •   New bulletin on Dam Safety Management for all phases of life cycle preceding the Operations Phase.
   •   The current practice of risk assessment and management for dams.
   •   Collection and dissemination of information on dam failures.
   •   Relation between dam safety and dam ageing.
   •   Dam safety legislation and regulation.
   •   The assessment of Consequence and ‘Hazard’ categories.
   •   The safe operation of ‘critical dam operational plant’.
   •   Safety during construction and major refurbishment.

PROPOSALS FOR ICOLD EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE

   1. ICOLD Executive Committee accept the countries of NEW ZEALAND, PANAMA and URUGUAY as Participating Members in
       Committee I
   2. ICOLD Executive Committee accept Alain PETIJEAN, FRANCE as the Vice Chair of Committee I

Committee I – Public Safety Around Dams held the initial full day meeting of the Committee in Lucerne on May 31, 2011. The following
represents a summary of the ICOLD Member Country participation and the discussion which took place.

PARTICIPATION
 In total fourteen [14] Countries were represented at the meeting. Three [3] countries who had indicated their interest in participating on the
Committee were not represented at the meeting (Germany, Italy and Portugal). The Chair will follow up with the National Committees of these
countries to solicit member participation at Kyoto, Japan, as well as to engage them in the work which will be conducted via Email/ Internet in
the period leading up to the Kyoto Congress 2012.

Three [3] Countries identified in advance of the Lucerne meeting that they would be willing to participate as MEMBERS on the Committee.
These Countries were represented at the meeting (New Zealand, Panama and Uruguay). The Committee would like to propose to ICOLD
Executive Committee that the Countries be added as official participating MEMBERS.

DISCUSSION

Introduction As this was the initial meeting of the Committee Introductory remarks were made to set the context of the Terms of Reference.
The introductory remarks included a presentation from the Chair featuring recent public safety incidents. In addition Urban Norstedt presented
a summary report from the European Club of ICOLD initiative on Public Safety.

Task 1 – Define the State of Practice Considerable time was spent with formal presentations regarding the state of practice and legislative
frameworks in Canada, France, Norway, Sweden, Japan and Australia. As well the other participating countries contributed with verbal reports
on the state of practice in their jurisdictions. It was decided that a Maturity Matrix approach will be undertaken over the next 12 months to
characterize the various states of practice. A working group was struck to complete this work.

Task 2 – Prepare a Bulletin on Public Safety Discussion was held on the preparation of the Bulletin, however it was decided to defer a more
detailed discussion on this topic until the Kyoto Congress as it is somewhat premature given that the main task is to prepare a state of practice
report which will serve to guide the development of a Technical Bulletin.

Task 3 – Interface with Committee N on Public Education Peter Mulvihill – Chair of Committee N was invited to provide a brief presentation
on the current work of Committee N in order to determine how the two committees can best complement one another. The discussion which
followed suggested that one of the sub-tasks the Committee will need to undertake is a survey of the Terms of Reference and Bulletins under
development by other Technical Committees to insure that our Committee works in concert. This will be undertaken prior to the Kyoto
Congress.

The meeting commenced at 8:30 hours

Five member countries were represented and six were absent. Two observers also attended the meeting.

The attendees reviewed the final draft of the ICOLD Dam Decommissioning Guidelines that were prepared by the committee members since the Hanoi meeting.
One remaining area of work includes adding information on the legal definition of a dam from various countries. We hope to use information being collected by the
Dam Safety Committee. We also need to revise the case histories so they are in a consistent format.

The final report in English should be submitted to Paris by September 2011. The report should be completed by the end of 2011 depending on the comments
received. Committee member Michel Dolbec will prepare the French translation.

The meeting adjourned at 11:00 hours.

This meeting was the last under the Tailings Dam committee’s current term of office. A three year extension to 2014
has been requested, for approval at the Executive Meeting on 3 June.

Mr. Rob Williamson, Chairman for the past 8 years and a committee member since 1988, is retiring as from 2011.
Mr. Harvey McCleod (Canada) will assume the Chairman role for the committees new term of office to 2014.

Bulletin 139: IMPROVING TAILINGS DAM SAFETY. Submitted to ICOLD Central Office 3 years ago. Advised
publication date: July 2011. Committee L records its disappointment at the long delay in publishing this important
document.

The committee spent time incorporating comments received from international committees to its current draft Bulletin:
“SUSTAINABLE DESIGN AND POST CLOSURE PERFORMANCE OF TAILINGS DAMS” (circulated by ICOLD
Central Office for comment in February 2011, for approval at the Lucerne Executive Meeting). The Canadian member
of the Committee (Mr. Harvey McLeod) has undertaken to make the translation to French by mid 2011, after which
the Bulletin will be submitted to the ICOLD Central Office for publication.

Additional tasks for completion in the next term of office are:
  • Updating of Bulletin 104: Monitoring of Tailings dams
  • Updating of Bulletin 121: Tailings Dam Incidents
  • A new Bulletin : Current Trends in Tailings Disposal.(to supplement Bulletin 106: Guide to Tailings Dams)

Introduction:
The Committee on Public Awareness and Education met from 800 to 1230 hours on Monday 31 May 2011 during the Annual ICOLD Meeting in
Lucerne, Switzerland. The meeting was attended by 10 members, 1 substitute and 2 observers.

Summary:

The following is a summary of the meeting:
   • The committee welcomed new members from France (Xavier Layrac) and Brazil (Miguel Soria) and the return to the committee of Mr
        Farhangi from Iran. The committee expressed its wish to welcome more members from developing countries in the future.
   • Members of the committee provided an update on their National Committee initiatives in the area of public awareness and education.
        Japanese representatives gave a presentation on the upcoming Kyoto Congress and dam safety problems arising from the earthquake in
        east Japan. The Brazilian representative gave a presentation on documents produced and translated into Portuguese by his National
        Committee and presented a Dictionary of Dams written in 4 languages.
   • A general discussion was held on the request for assistance in the public awareness and education area by the Committee on Public Safety
        around Dams. The committee agreed to collaborate and assist where possible.
   • The final version the revised ICOLD Communication plan was presented. It was agreed that a small summary of the recommended actions
        be drafted to introduce the document and the final document to be sent to Central Office for approval and distribution to National
        Committees.
   • In addition to the ICOLD Communication Plan the committee is to prepare a small guideline to assist in preparation of Communication Plans
        at a National Committee level.
   • The ICOLD Secretary General gave a presentation on the new ICOLD website. The committee is to assist in reviewing the website and
        content.
   • The ICOLD media manager, Mr Grenier gave an update on media activities. He noted the difficulties locating reliable contacts and sources
        of information from National committees when approached by the international press on specific regional issues. He expressed the need for
        answers to provide the international press on the subject of alternatives to large dams for water supply.
   • Issues regarding the perception in some regions that run of river hydropower projects are preferable to a storage project was discussed. It
        was considered that in general ICOLD publications and bulletins reinforce that when designing a project the final form of a project is a
        function of topography and where possible storage projects can provide significant benefits over run of river through the storage of potential
        energy. In specific cases national committees should address this issue through their local media and informed debate.
   • A strategy to increase the profile of ICOLD Technical Bulletins was discussed. An outline of a one page presentation has been formulated.
        Technical committees are to be approached to provide an article on the composition of their committee, a summary of objectives and current
        and past publications.
   • Priorities for the coming year were discussed. Priorities included, review of the proposed new ICOLD Website, finalizing current documents
        including the Communication Plan and Strategy, producing draft guidelines for communication at a National Committee level and improving
        the profile of Technical Bulletins, and contacts and communications within ICOLD.

The Committee was established in the Sitges Executive Meeting, in 2006, with members coming from 21 different countries. During its
term of office the Committee had important contributions coming from several of its members and from Paul Roberts.

The final drafts of the Committee on the Constitution and the By Laws were concluded on November, 2010 and sent to the ICOLD Board
for review in December, 2010.

The ICOLD Board reviewed the draft from December 2010 to March 2011. The Committee prepared the two final texts on March 2011.
The final propositions of the Constitution and the By Laws were circulated by the Central Office to all National Committees on April 3,
2011.

In Luzern the Committee had a meeting with the ICOLD Board on the 24 May. The Board fully supports the proposed Constitution and By
Laws.

The Committee met on the 25 May with the participation of Honorary Presidents W. Pircher (Austria) and C. Viotti (Brazil) and other
members: B. Hagin (Switzerland), A. Hughes (UK), E. Bellendir (Russia) and F. Miguez de Mello (Brazil) and P. Roberts (South Africa).

The main points of both documents were discussed once more and approved avoiding one unnecessary repetition.

The President and the Honorary Presidents fully support the proposed amendments.

The Term of Office of the Committee will be extended of one year; the work of the Committee will therefore end in 2012.

The Committee meeting was attended by 14 Members (or substitute) and 10 Observers.

The Committee reviewed and discussed the current status of the Bulletin, which is organized in the following seven chapters:
1.    ELECTRICITY DEMAND AND PRODUCTION
2.    DAMS AND HYDROPOWER PLANTS
3.    KEY FEATURES OF THE HYDROLECTRICITY
4.    HYDROPOWER DEVELOPMENT
5     DAMS FOR TIDAL POWER
6     CASE HISTORIES
7     SOURCES OF INFORMATION

For the chapters 1 - 6 a rev. 2 draft has been prepared and circulated among members before the meeting. For the Chapter 7 the list of
the main information sources to be considered has been defined.

It has been confirmed that the purpose of the Bulletin of the Committee is to provide an overview of the main aspects of the hydropower
development, highlighting its capability to positively contribute to other needs, in addition to the energy production, in an integrated water
resource management approach.

The framework adopted for the General Report of Question 88 (Brasilia Congress) has been adopted as initial reference scheme to start
the preparation of the Bulletin.

As far as concerns the Chapter 6 (CASE HISTORIES), instead than preparing “a few new case-histories – not yet reported in technical
literature”, the Committee found more useful to collect information about case histories already documented in technical literature,
identifying the most interesting information sources (those describing several case studies, not just one or very few), and then giving a
synthetic information about them.

Dr. Chandrakant Thatte, CDWT Chairman, was not able to attend this meeting as well as the nominated CDWT members, Ms. Gabriela
Mañueco, (Spain), Mr. Salar Baki Sami (Iraq), Mr. Lahoussine Akrajai, (Morocco), Mr. Jehangir Akhtar, (Pakistan), Mr. Zhu Ruixiang, (China)
and Ms. Sedigheh Torabi (Iran).

   1. Membership

Mr. Yoshihiro Katsuhama was appointed as Japan representative, replacing Mr. Toru Nakagawa which resigned his post.

   2. Bulletin

The bulletin was presented and commented during the meeting to make all participants acquainted to its contents.

During the committee chairmen meeting it was stated that CDWT should handle a final draft version until the end of this year, to be circulated
among NGs and be finalized until the next meeting, which is supposed to be the final one since CDWT term is 2012.

Item 2 (Registry) is still in hold waiting for ICID final report on this subject. It was suggested to wait a few months for this report and, in case it is
not available, it should be used the 2007 version.

The draft which was circulated starting last meeting was again handled to the participants in digital media, including observers, for their
comments and suggestions. The deadline for receiving their communication is next early August.


                                                                                               2

   3. Planning

It was agreed to have all collaboration by August, and then the bulletin will be formatted and handed to ICOLD central office, by next January to
circulate it into the community.

   4. Final remarks

We found appropriate to finish this first bulletin anyway and, upon its analysis, verify the need of extending the term of this committee and
consequent actions, for example the preparation of a workshop on Water Transfers as already mentioned in previous reports and the
preparation of a new bulletin for complimentary issues.

Since this is a quite new subject and has not aroused the due interest, the bulletin proposed to be delivered next January will be considered as

The session of the Committee started by some words of the chairman informing about the main issues discussed in the meeting of chairmen and
vice-chairmen with the board of ICOLD. Also he informed that the General Report, approved in Hanoi, is under translation by the French National
Committee on Large Dams.

The Japanese representative of Kyoto University made a short presentation of ICOLD Congress to be held next year. Also, the President of Brazilian
Committee on Large Dams presented the next National Symposium on Rockfill Dams which will be held in Rio de Janeiro next October. Both of them
highly recommended their respective events.

Dealing with the work of the Committee, the meeting was divided in two parts.

In the first one two Case Studies of Basins were presented before the crowd.

A - Brazilian Basins Case Study.
The President of the Brazilian Committee on Large Dams presented the Cases of Brazilian Amazonas Basin and Brazilian Parana Basin. The first
one focused on the new hydropower schemes and their adaptation to new trend in his country. He explained Belomonte hydropower project, Santo
Antonio and some other relevant projects in the basin. The upper Parana Basin case, including the flood protection measures adopted in some
reservoirs in the basin was also presented.

The convenience to include Peruvian and Bolivian upper parts of the basin as well as the contribution of Ecuador, Colombia and Venezuela was
under discussion in order to have a more comprehensive analysis of the case. We agreed to try collecting complementary information in order to
prepare the case study according the concept of basin.

B - On the other hand, the representative of Turkey presented the case of the upper Euphrates and Tigris basin, by means of the ambitious GAP
(South east Anatolia Project). Some issues related with social and economic issues and the promotion of the regional development were shown and
put under discussion. Also the international agreements and the benefits and concern for downstream communities in neighbor countries have been
discussed.

In the second part of the meeting, the chairman asked for suggestions and proposal to improve the “proposed table of contents of the Cases Studies”
in order to release some reports on several major basins trying to be understood by general people and show with transparency the role that dams
played in the past and can play in the future helping the humankind facing its new challenges. The best way is considered to show objective
information leading to the clear understanding of the basin resources, uses, institutions, rules, concerns, proposals, etc. in order to be able to imagine
the present and future scenarios as well to imagine a realistic scenario without dams as a way to identify the role that dams play in water resources
and energy management. This table of content will be a guideline to be followed as much as possible but carefully adapted to the key items in each
basin.

Finally, the crowd agreed to make a special mention to the memory of Pål Mellquist, who passed away recently. His positive contribution to the
Committee meant a key for the success of the work and gave an open minded point of view being a reference for of us.

 -   But we will prepare brief report which includes groundwater dams list and tables in the world. Also, we give the list of credible
     reference relating the groundwater dams.
 -   During the term of office, we collected many cases of groundwater dam (few tens sites, about 50 from 12 countries) and many
     documentary of groundwater dams
 -   There are still some problems in credibility of some references and it is needed to be confirmed by national committees if they can
     help this committee.

                            -   Prepare report of activities for ICOLD

New committee members joined the group. About 10 observers participated in the meeting.

2. Climate change related activity updates from national committees

Japan: T. Sugiura discussed implications of March 2011 Sendai earthquake on dams and reservoirs in Japan, and noted that the
Japanese committee will give a presentation during the Symposium on that matter. T. Sugiura also presented main features of new
released Japanese Guidelines for Climate Change impact studies, elaborated by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and
Tourism. T. Sugiura shared the document with the group (can be downloaded from www.mlit.go.jp/river)

France: D. Aelbrecht mentioned stress tests induced by Fukushima accident to be performed on all European nuclear stations. That tests
include potential impact of dams and reservoirs failures, together with effects of climate-driven hazards effects (floods, droughts).
D. Aelbrecht also presented recent research activity in France on impact of climate and regulated or non-regulated water resources
management scenarios on a SW watershed in France.

Australia: D. Stewart outlined the effect of the huge floods that occurred in Queensland in last December. Debate arose in this region
about correct operation of reservoirs according to procedures. Also, there are new questions about the need for additional storage
capacity to regulate increasing variability of inflows: how to pre-release water from reservoirs to store additional high inputs; and how to
sustain low inflows.

USA: B. Dwyer discussed ongoing Colorado river climate change impact study, based on “what if” scenarios and use of GCMs scenarios.
He also informed about the formation of a climate change alliance among 8 major US cities.

South Korea: Y.D. Bae presented the 4Major River Restoration Project (4MRRP). This huge project of about US$15 billions aims at
bringing new retention capacities and new spillway capacity for flood control, new restoration areas, additional recreational opportunities,
                                                                                                                                       Y – p.   3
and improving water quality. 23 dams must have their spillways capacity reviewed due to a change in PMP estimations (+130 à +300%).
Project lasts from 2009 to 2012.

Sweden: C.O. Brandensten showed results of application of climate change impact analysis to assess evolution of 10000-yr (category I
dams) and 100-yr (category II dams) return period floods, using set of GCM & GHG emissions scenarios,

Some of the updates were supported by presentations which will be shared among participants.

3. Review of bulletin structure and extended outlines

An updated version (V5) of a DRAFT bulletin was discussed and agreed upon, that includes adjustments and improvements to version V4.

Additional assignments have been determined to have more contributors to individual chapters.

     2.   Review and discussion of the Committee TORs and scope of work;
     3.   Progress report on the ongoing training programs;
     4.   Review and adoption of the training and capacity building survey questionnaire;
     5.   Discussion of some responses on capacity development needs of member countries;
     6.   Discussion of the Outline of the paper to be presented to the board on ICOLD and CAPACITY BUILDING in DAM ENGINEERING
     7.   Development of the outline for the ICOLD action plan on Capacity Building and
     8.   Distribution of tasks.

2.        INTRODUCTION of the COMMITTEE MEMBERS and
          SELECTION of a VICE CHAIRMAN and a SECRETARY

After due consultations with the members present it was decided that a vice chairman and a secretary be nominated for the Ad Hoc committee.
    - Vice Chairman : Dr Ali NOORZAD
    - Secretary         : FEMI SONUGA

 Dr Kevin Wall form South Africa is working with the committee as observer

Mr. Lars Hammar of Sweden designated from the Committee for professional reason

Due to the absence of many members and the resignation of Mr Lars Hammar from the committee It was proposed to discuss with the ICOLD Board to look for the
possibility to admit Dr Kevin as member of the ad hoc committee

3.        REVIEW OF THE COMMITTEE TORs AND SCOPE OF WORK

It was found necessary to intimate the committee on the TOR and the scope of works as well as the time line for the committee. The TOR was subsequently
reviewed and discussed to ensure that all members understood the requirements of the Capacity Building committee. The goals are to develop a
COMPREHENSIVE VISION and provide a strategy and an ACTION PLAN to implement this vision. The Committee is also responsible for the development of
training programs as well as conducting the ongoing training programs.

The meeting recognized that capacity building issue is very general to all member countries of ICOLD both developed and developing countries but with different
needs.
                                                                                                                                                   Z – p. 3


4.     PROGRESS REPORT of ONGOING TRAINING PROGRAMS

A progress report on the on-going training program was presented to the meeting by the chairman.

PROGRAMS

      Turkey
          The Turkey program has been very successful and based on consultations and discussions with DSI of Turkey the training programme for
          turkey has been extended for three additional years. ICOLD central office has to send the signed protocol to DSI to allow the start of the
          implementation of the new program early.DSI is waiting for this protocol.

      Morocco
      • The training program in Morocco is also progressing well. The third session which started in April 2011is currently on-going. It is expected
         to be completed by June 2011. The Morocco dam’s authorities have stated their willingness to renew for an additional three more years.
         The major difficulty with participants has been the difficulty in paying the transportation fees.

      Spain
      • Spain has indicated its interest in offering training programs geared towards consulting and contracting firm. The support is estimated to be
         for 3persons per year. Details of the protocol needs to worked out as soon as possible.

      China
      • A technical tour has been organizes on October 2010 in China under the initiative and support of China for the 12 professionals of Africa in
          the framework of the efforts to promote the world declaration for Africa and to move forward in project development in Africa. A second tour
          is scheduled to be held on October 2011 for African Professionals.
      • Dr Jia ICOLD Chairman announces during the Round table meeting for Africa on Monday 30 may 2011 in Lucerne that China is preparing
          sponsorship for training programs for Masters and Doctorate programmes in Dam related fields in China.

General discussions on the training centered on how to improve it.

There were suggestions that the regional institutions be assisted with institutional development so that they could provide similar training specific to
the peculiarities of the regions. It is suggested that ICOLD could assist by persuading some of the older experts to give seminars and short term
training at these regional institutions.

The contribution of ICOLD members to capacity building programmes in the past and under different platforms was discussed and it was agreed that
the Committee should get in touch with those members so as to get their contribution.
                                                                                                                                              Z – p. 4


The editor for the International Journal on Hydropower & Dams also stated their willingness to assist through their forums.

5.     REVIEW and ADOPTION of the TRAINING and CAPACITY BUILDING SURVEY QUESTIONNAIRE

A few of the feedbacks from the participant of the training programmes were discussed by the meeting. It was agreed that a comprehensive analysis
of the feedback should be made and presented to the Committee before the next meeting.

6.     DISCUSSION of SOME RESPONSES on CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT NEEDS of MEMBER COUNTRIES;

It was generally felt that the responses from the member countries to the committee’s Capacity Development needs assessment were very poor. With
very few responses it was difficult to formulate good programmes. The meeting agreed that a stronger follow up of the contacts in different countries.

7.     DEVELOPMENT of the OUTLINE for the ICOLD ACTION PLAN on CAPACITY BUILDING

The chairman presented the draft outline for the ICOLD ACTION PLAN. Each topic was exhaustively deliberated on and the adopted Outline for the
development of the Action Plan is attached to this report.

8.     DISTRIBUTION OF TASKS.

It was agreed that two members should work on an initial draft which should be completed by the end of September and circulated amongst the
members of the committee for their review and inputs. The reviews are expected to be submitted to the committee within a month of receipt.
Subsequently these reviews would be taken into consideration at any future forum where there are at least three members of the committee present
and a final draft should be prepared. The final draft should be sent to the member countries before the end of the year.

It is expected that the comments from the member countries would be received by December 2012 which would give adequate time for the
preparation of the Action Plan for presentation at the Annual General Meeting in Kyoto Japan in June 2012.

2   HOW WE GOT TO THIS POINT

      The original vision for the Young Engineers Forum (YEF) was developed at the ICOLD Congress in Brasilia 2009. The subject of a group representing
      younger Engineers was discussed by the ICOLD Board on a number of occasions. There was principle support of the ideas and vision and a more detailed
      proposal of YEF was submitted to the ICOLD Board in 09/2010. The detailed proposal obtained support and the first YEF gathering could take place at the
      2011 Annual Meeting in Lucerne.

      The main objectives of YEF are to:

             1.       Encourage the attendance and involvement of younger engineers at the ICOLD meetings.
             2.       Provide an opportunity for knowledge transfer to the next generation and ensuring the long term future of ICOLD.
             3.       Provide an opportunity for the younger engineers to connect with each other to enable sharing of experiences.
             4.       Inspire younger engineers to become active in their National Committees to support the above three objectives nationally and internationally.
             5.       Provide a forum where country strategies around the attraction, encouragement, development and support of the younger engineers in the
                      dam engineering industry can be shared.
             6.       Provide a format where strategies can be developed to support the above 4 objectives, and put forward to the ICOLD Board for acceptance
                      and action.

      The format of YEF is:

                  •   Target under 40s
                  •   ICOLD Board decided on Young Engineers Forum to distinguish from Technical Committees or Regional Clubs and to avoid affect by
                      changes in ICOLD constitution
                  •   Chair with some Vice Chair if necessary
                  •   New Chair voted every 2 years
                  •   Election modus for Chairs will be constantly reviewed and revisions made after petition and voting by the forum
                  •   Meet at least once a year – at ICOLD Meeting
                                                                                                                                                   YEF – p.    3
3   OFFICIAL FORMATION

       The proposed organisational structure of YEF was discussed (Chairman, Vice-Chairman Communications, Vice-Chairman Technical Questions, each voted
       for two years). It was agreed that a Chairman shall be voted at this first gathering to provide a counterpart to the ICOLD Board and National Committees.
       The detailed organisation will be reviewed during the coming year.

       Marco Conrad (Switzerland) voted by the YEF participants of the first gathering as first Chairman until 2013.

4   OBJECTIVES FOR THE YEAR AHEAD

                   •   Next YEF meeting at Kyoto 2012
                   •   Refined formulation of Terms of Reference
                   •   Promotion of YEF at National Committees to grant scholarships for Kyoto 2012
                   •   Promotion of YEF at JCOLD to host a poster session on projects by YEF participants (similar to CDA at Montreal 2003)
                   •   Develop further strategies around attraction, encouragement,… of Dam Engineers
                   •   Start implement with ICOLD the support measures required by YEF (e.g. webpage corner)
