FLOOD WARNING

DYNAMICALLY MONITOR AND ALARM TO AVOID FLOOD DEVASTATION

"The Metasphere units are working very well, allowing crucial flow data to be retrieved to satisfy regulatory compliance for the water companies and the Environment Agencies in both England and Scotland"

Karl Bambynek, Siris Environmental Ltd

Metasphere provides customised flood monitoring systems, which can dynamically monitor and alarm when a predetermined risk level is exceeded.

Each system can consist of up to 12 sensors monitoring an array of flood-related parameters including: rainfall, soil moisture, groundwater, river levels, flow-rate, sewer levels and water velocity.

THE PROBLEM

Recent years has seen a large increase in the volatility of weather systems around the world. This has resulted in more dramatic rainfall events and rising water levels far more frequently than ever seen before.

THE RISK

Lack of suitable monitoring and the information it provides can expose businesses, property and human life to the most perilous events our weather can produce. Without proper monitoring, the increase in risk to livelihoods and life can increase manifold.

THE SOLUTION

Monitoring systems need to provide near-real time data on water levels and flows, rainfall data and potentially soil moisture. Timely delivery of information and warnings is vital to enable appropriate defensive action.

HOW DOES THE METASPHERE
SOLUTION WORK?

Metasphere monitoring systems based on the Point Colour range will take inputs from up to 12 sensors. Sensors are monitored on a pre-defined interval, relevant to both the site and the sensors being deployed.

The Point Colour RTU can be configured to dynamically increase its measurement rate, and dynamically dial in if one of its user-definable alarm levels is breached. Data can be sent back to the Metasphere data service, Palette, where users can view the received data or make use of both the email and SMS alarm functionality. The latter is particularly useful for receiving alarms out of hours.

Data can also be sent to both FTP and DNP3 servers where subsequent alarms can be generated by the user, or data can be used to perform control functions.
