    Hydrometry Monitoring

    For rivers and streams we offer a range of impeller and electromagnetic current flow meters to use as a point velocity measuring devices to aid monitoring during catchment management, discharges and pollution.

    Water level can be monitored via pressure transducer and logger together with radio and GSM/GPRS telemetry options.

  • Flow monitoring for quarry dewatering compliance

    A Greyline AVFM Area-Velocity Flow Meter monitors and data logs water discharged from the Bray Quarry to the South Raisin River. The Quarry is required to measure flow for environmental permit compliance.

    Monitoring of hydroelectric dam sumps

    The Situation

    Hydroelectric dams produce electric power by harnessing the force of the water flowing through the dam. There are numerous sources for oil spillage:

    • The hydroelectric turbines are lubricated by lubrication oils.
    • The very large water control valves are normally hydraulic powered and are lubricated with various greases and oils.
    • Vehicles including fork lifts, trucks, etc., can spill oils and fuels.

    Any accidental spillage of oil or grease or intentional wash down water containing minor amounts of oils, greases, and detergents must be collected and treated before discharge to the river. These fluids along with any water leaks are collected in sumps in the dam and are regularly pumped out. In many cases, the volume of water is substantial.

    Water Testing for Environmental Applications

    Keeping the water in our lakes, rivers, and streams clean requires monitoring of water quality at many points as it gradually makes its way from its source to our oceans. Over the years ever increasing environmental concerns and regulations have heightened the need for increased diligence and tighter restrictions on wastewater quality. Control of water pollution was once concerned mainly with treating wastewater before it was discharged from a manufacturing facility into the nation`s waterways. Today, in many cases, there are restrictions on wastewater that is discharged to city sewer systems or to other publicly owned treatment facilities. Many jurisdictions even restrict or regulate the runoff of stormwater — affecting not only industrial and commercial land, but also residential properties as well.

  • Dye Tracing

    Monitoring the dilution and movement of a tracer introduced into the water column provides an excellent means of determining the path that may be followed by a discharge and the rate at which dilution is likely to take place. Fluorescent dyes such as Rhodamine, Fluorescein or Agma are the most frequently used tracers for such investigations. Chelsea Technologies has been providing dye tracing systems for over 30 years. Typical applications include sub-sea pipeline leak detection, pollution studies, natural water flow analysis (rivers, lakes, ocean currents, cave water flows, groundwater filtration etc), sewer and storm water drainage analysis. The Chelsea systems can be configured for a wide variety of tracers, are highly sensitive, robust, and deliver real-time data. They can be moored, profiled, towed or affixed to ROV / AUV platforms.
