There are hundreds of privately and publicly owned dams in the Naugatuck Valley region. To ensure public safety, the State of Connecticut requires that all dams be inspected periodically. Under the DEEP Dam Safety program, dam owners will be notified by DEEP when their dam is due for inspection and the dam owner will be responsible for hiring a qualified engineer to inspect their dam and submit a report back to DEEP. Additional information and guidance can be found at the CT DEEP Dam Safety Page.
In order to assist the region’s dam owners in compliance with the new regulations, NVCOG issued a request for qualification statements for dam inspection and other dam safety related engineering services. A list of engineering firms that submitted qualification statements can be found below.

A Request for Qualification Statements (RFQ) for Regulatory Dam Inspections and other Dam Related Engineering Services was posted by NVCOG in June 2014. Firms that submitted their qualifications and satisfied all requirements of the RFQ are listed below, along with completed standardized qualification forms and resumés of relevant staff. This list and accompanying documentation is meant to assist dam owners in the early stages of securing an engineering firm for dam inspection or other dam safety related services.
