Drainage – Network Rail, Blackwater River
Blackwater river level monitoring is part of a larger Network Rail contract which comes under our Wessex works which we have been working on throughout 2013 and 2014.
Summary of the works
- Client: Network Rail
- Duration: February 2014 – Present
This site in particular has a water level sensor attached to a bridge which in turn is connect to a standalone data logger. The sensor is capable of measuring the water height above and below the bridge deck and in turn if alarms are breeched a camera image can be requested day or night as the camera also has a infra-red light to determine if high water levels are likely to impact on railway.
