Exeter City Council
Short-Term Flood Monitoring through rainfall and flow measurement 

Exeter City Council were required to undertake a detailed urban flooding study of the North Brook Catchment. This is an area that has suffered historic flooding and the study was necessary under the European Floods Directive. HLS were commissioned to ground-truth the theoretical modelling element of the study by providing a detailed network of rainfall and flow measurement solutions.

Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA), 2004 - 2005
Supply and installation of flood warning system

Supply of 12 no. Hawk XT telemetry loggers for use with tipping-bucket rain-gauges plus supply and installation of 6 no. telemetered flow gauges to the SEPA west area as part of a flood warning instrumentation project. Each flow gauge was comprised of a Teledyne RDi Channelmaster H-ADCP with a Hawk XT outstation.  The Isodaq FEP6 telemetry server was supplied as the main data acquisition and alarm management system, interfaced via file transfer to the client's existing HIMS Hydrological Information system.  Site work also included in-situ calibration using ADCP-based current meter gauging checks at each of the sites in order to establish initial velocity index ratings for the gauges.
