Hydro-Logic Services part of AMP 5 Low Flow Monitoring Programme

04/01/2012

Hydro-Logic Services have been awarded the monitoring on the River Colne for Veolia Water as part of their AMP 5 low flow investigations. The lead consultant Mott MacDonald awarded Hydro-Logic Services the contract following the completion of a number of intense signal tests over the winter period on this complex river system. This monitoring included a variety of gauging methods including both current meter and Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) gauging methodologies, due to the variety of channel shapes and depths. For more information on this or other similar projects being delivered across the South-East, please contact Karen Clack on 01189 331325 or kclack@hydro-logic.co.uk

Notes:
The Restoring Sustainable Abstraction (RSA) Programme was set up by the Environment Agency in 1999 to identify and catalogue those sites which may be at risk from abstraction. The RSA Programme forms part of the Environment Agency’s National Environmental Programme (NEP). The NEP for AMP5 (2010 – 2015) is driven by the Environment Agency’s need to implement the Water Framework Directive (WFD) and local issues identified by the Catchment Abstraction Management Strategy (CAMS) process.
