Remote Water Level Monitoring
Water level monitoring used to be done manually, with engineers recording water levels on a regular basis, often monthly, and continuous advancements in technology mean that water level monitoring can now be done remotely. Telemetry devices can record water levels more regularly. This data can then be sent to other devices at a distance, improving responsiveness and ease of use. In addition, remote water level monitoring has many other benefits, including increased accuracy and reduced risk of human error.The water level monitoring system can help people better understand the situation and protect people's safety
Common Applications for Water Level Monitoring
In addition to saving time, water level monitoring has wide-ranging environmental benefits, such as increased visibility into potential flooding conditions. By utilizing water level monitoring systems, it is easier to quickly deploy countermeasures in the event of water levels becoming too high or too low. Equipped with highly sensitive pressure sensors, water level loggers can detect the smallest change in water level and can send an alert to preferred contacts alerting them to the situation.
This advantage means that water level monitoring is often used in some of the following applications:
River water level monitoring
Surface Water Monitoring
Groundwater and Surface Water Monitoring
One of the most common uses of water level monitoring equipment is to measure ground and surface water. Low-flow groundwater sampling is very beneficial as the groundwater table presents less visible signs. Monitoring groundwater flow helps detect possible changes in water flow, or increases or decreases in water volume, which could indicate changes in flow paths, or alert of potential surface flooding.
In terms of surface water monitoring, water level monitoring can be used in lakes, rivers and coastal waters. In the short term, this helps alert of potentially dangerous water levels so that remedial action can be taken. In the longer term, however, monitoring water levels can provide greater insight into water distribution patterns in the region and measure the effects of global warming.
Measure water levels to prevent flooding
The impact of flooding on communities and families can be catastrophic. In a short period of time, floodwaters have the ability to cause irreparable damage to prized property and wreak havoc on life. Remote water level monitoring helps provide an early warning system by giving an early warning of any possible flooding conditions, providing valuable time to secure assets, move valuables and secure property.
Water level monitoring is beneficial for a variety of applications and industries. Our JXCT products provide accurate remote water level monitoring, meaning that whether used to record surface or ground water levels, results can be recorded and transmitted immediately.
