In the past, home and business owners along the creek that comes from Mantua Reservoir, near Brigham City, Utah, had very little warning concerning high water flowing down the creek. To remedy this, Intermountain Environmental, Inc., (IEI) designed and installed a hybrid flood warning system featuring CR800 dataloggers and RF450 radios. The system notifies emergency personnel of the possibility of flooding or of dangerous water levels in the creek.
IEI installed three measurement stations, plus a base station with a voice modem. The base station requests the water-level, flow, or rain data from each station every minute. If there are flood conditions, the system notifies emergency personnel with a voice response. Read more about this system at campbellsci.com/brigham-city-flood.
