Perth and Kinross City Council, Scotland
Supply of Flood Warning scheme for Perth, March 2008 -ongoing
Hydro-Logic was appointed by Perth and Kinross council via Halcrow Consulting Engineers to supply, install and maintain monitoring sites. These sites were spread over Perth City primarily to monitor the levels in a number of small burns that pass through the centre of Perth. The burns historically can cause severe flooding and their monitoring was deemed essential as part of the cities overall flood prevention scheme.
The system comprised of level systems and trash screen monitors transmitting both level information and alarms back to the City Council's own Timeview Telemetry Account. HL also supplied observation cameras which, when pre-set levels are exceeded, send pictures of potential screen blockages so that maintenance teams can prioritise site visits.
Design and installation services were provided by our sister company within the Hydro-Logic Group, Hydro-Logic Services Ltd.
