Water Abstraction Monitoring
Meteor have provided Atkins with a Water Quality Monitoring system on the River Medway for use monitoring abstraction by Southern Water. The fully managed service includes equipment hire, installation, web setup and data hosting.
The system consists of three portable GPRS stations measuring Conductivity, Temperature, Dissolved Oxygen, PH, Ammonium and Turbidity.
Each station reports live data every 15 minutes via GPRS with data displayed onto the web. Alarm conditions were also set to alert the Water Company, Atkins and the Environment Agency of event conditions.
Following an initial enquiry the stations went live within one week, operating as a complete managed system, with Meteor taking care of all data acquisition aspects of the project.
Pictured is the site at Aylesford Bridge, which is a sensitive installation due to the high tidal range coupled with a grade 1 listed structure.
