Numerous water level monitoring sites were installed on reactive tributaries with measurement technologies ranging from Constant Flow Bubblers, EWS Vented Water Level Pressure Sensors, to radar and trail camera setups. Additional Tipping Bucket Rain Gauges were installed in surrounding areas to provide more accurate and localised meteorological information to customers.
For installed monitoring devices multiple alarms were configured corresponding to critical river water levels (1, 2 & 3m in some cases) and high intensity rainfall events (+20mm). This then provided the necessary early warning for the customer to make critical safety and operational decisions based on real-time environmental data
