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 10 no. 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 7 no. level systems and 3 no. trash screen monitors transmitting both level information and alarms back to the City Council's own FEP6 management system. HL also supplied 2 no. Camsys observation cameras, which sends out an email, when a pre-set level is exceeded, of pictures of potential screen blockages so that maintenance teams can prioritise site visits.
