Urban Hydrology deals with the specific aspects of the hydrological cycle in urban and industrial settings. This includes all natural water flows as well as the consideration of precipitation, storm water, groundwater, rivers, and lakes, but also the infrastructure and systems for water supply and sanitation in a city.
Groundwater hydrology is an interpretive science: we can’t observe the aquifers directly so we must interpolate and extrapolate our understanding from water-level measurements taken from observation wells. Stevens has expertise for measuring both water quantity and water quality.
Specialized data loggers for connection with flow meters, rain gauges, water level sensors, and weather stations. Designed for fast deployment at a low cost, these standalone solutions are weather-resistant for reliable operation under hostile conditions. Our real-time telemetry and early warning systems include GPRS data loggers to monitor remote sites.
Use KISTERS solutions to manage all of the various data from your Urban Water Management programs. From water distribution to water treatment, infiltration and inflow studies, groundwater, as well as long term precipitation monitoring and real time control systems. An optional water quality module is also available to manage your discrete sample data.
Water resource management refers to the conservation, custody and transport monitoring of water as a natural resource. Measurements are made to quantify water for the purpose of protection, forecasting, management, lawmaking, enforcement, policymaking, resource allocation and public reporting. Stevens has been providing quality products for water management for over 100 years.
In recent years acoustic flow measurement and flow metering has established itself as the standard method for measurement in many hydrological stations but is also used as the basis for various applications, for example for flood protection and flood forecasting. Ultrasonic flow meters are also used in hydro-engineering constructions. With this almost contact free technology data can be recorded continuously and it provides 24/7 monitoring. Such flow monitoring is particularly important in waterways used for...
Over the past few decades, soil monitoring has become increasingly important. Environmental factors such as climate change, dwindling water resources, and threatened habitats are driving the need to monitor the environment and implement better policies to protect it. Many natural processes in the environment are driven by or in some ways related to soil hydrological processes. Monitoring soil moisture conditions provides important information for the protection of, and in the understanding of local and regional...
Climate change makes for more extreme weather. The main reasons for this are wind and precipitation.That is why an increasing number of meteorological and hydrological monitoring networks are coming together. Global coverage with hydro-meteorological measuring technology is varied. Very old and very modern (new) measuring networks are used for climate monitoring worldwide. And there are still large gaps, for example on the oceans.
From simple manual rainfall collection devices, electronic tipping bucket rain gauge sensors, through to fully autonomic stand alone data logging systems with telemetry for hydrological network applications.
Measuring water quantity and quality in surface water (open channels, rivers, reservoirs, lakes, and estuaries) is one of the foundations of hydrological monitoring and has been a focus of OTT Hydromet since its first water current meters were designed in 1875.
It is the job of Stormwater and Floodplain Manager to plan, develop and manage our resources that provide a response to the hydrologic cycle and our part in it. Water evaporates, falls from the skies onto urban, rural and forested lands, and runs off into streams, rivers and lakes, as well as onto roofs, roads and urban landscapes and is utilised by those who live there. You design the physical infrastructure necessary to meet the needs of society and to preserve the natural environment, and model its ability to...
The Water Survey of Canada, a division of Environment Canada, is a federal government agency responsible for collection, interpretation and dissemination of water source data and information.
As a division of Environment Canada, the Water Survey of Canada (WSC) covers a vast range of topographical environs from Arctic Canada to the US border with elevations varying from sea level to over 13,000 feet (4,000 metres). An estimated 7% of the world’s renewable water supplies are found in Canada. Canada’s hydrology is...

Accurate estimation of the spatial distribution of rainfall is critical to successfully model hydrologic processes. OneRain has worked with engineering firms and those with responsibilities in Stormwater and Wastewater Management across the U.S. to provide radar rainfall data to help characterize storm events or flow problems in collection systems and as a basis for both real-time and design-oriented modeling. OneRainware products and services offer:
*Real-time gauge-adjusted radar rainfall (GARR) data
