CDA Guidance Documents online for members

Individuals and organizations have been able to purchase CDA guidance documents either in print or PDF format from the CDA Shop for years.  CDA is pleased to announce that it has made its guidance documents available online for free to members in good standing.  These documents cannot be downloaded but are fully searchable and can be read online at any time.

Members and non-members can continue to purchase print or PDF versions through the CDA Shop (member and non-member pricing applies) should they wish to have a hard copy version or to be able to print pages from their PDF versions.

CDA Guidance Documents
CDA Dam Safety Guidelines (2013) - English and French

CDA Guidelines for Public Safety Around Dams (2011) - English and French
