The dewatering systems in the FortisBC hydropower generation facilities need long-term rehabilitation solutions. The purpose of this project is to develop a risk assessment model for the dewatering systems of hydropower generation facilities, and to identify the best long-term rehabilitation solutions for such facilities. Recommendation on long-term maintenance and rehabilitation will be provided on the basis of failure risk, safety risk, maintainability, costs, and environmental impacts. Component level failure events and probabilities will be considered in establishing the overall system risk for all possible rehabilitation options. The life cycle system costs and environmental impacts will be considered together with the risks to identify the most suitable rehabilitation option through a generalizable risk assessment model.
