Thanks to the team at Atkins for the opportunity to share a stand at the Water Summit held at Moreton-in-March this week and demonstrate the work in progress on the Evenlode Catchment. Led by The University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) and attended by senior figures from across the sphere of catchment management, including major water utilities and HRH The Prince of Wales the event was to announce that over 50 high profile organisations have signed up to the Catchment Management Declaration. This is a commitment to protect and improve river catchments across the UK and is a significant step in raising Water Quality at an integrated, catchment level.

As part of the Southern Water’s River Medway Scheme (RMS), Meteor Communications are providing Atkins with high resolution, real time water quality data; not only is this required for license purposes but it is also used directly by Atkins, Southern Water and the Environment Agency to make evidence based decisions with regards to operation of the RMS and abstraction from the Medway. Please see our project page for more information.
During the recent wet weather experienced in Wales and North West England Meteor’s flood monitoring camera systems have provided invaluable real time images from remote trash screens and culverts to Local Councils, Water Utilities and the Environment Agency.
The cameras and secure web portal enable a more proactive, targeted response to events as they unfold on site. This means that flooding events can be mitigated at an earlier point or avoided entirely, with site personnel able to remotely assess and monitor the situation live from any web enabled device.
The picture above shows a blockage in progress at a grid in the middle of the night, which would not have been detected using traditional level monitoring systems.
Meteor are pleased to announce that we have moved to new offices in Martinfield, Welwyn Garden City. Our newly refurbished facility houses our production, development and adminstration functions in a space which has been specifically designed for our continued expansion. We look forward to welcoming you here soon.
