A system is tested to monitor the hydrological functionality and capacity of the catchment to support the collaborative impact assessment of 1) sea water level rise 2) increased rainstorm frequency and intensity and 3) summer droughts and changed precipitation pattern. The catchment spans 8 different local governments, 3 water utilities, rural and urban areas, and lack of capacity is a source of conflict among the different end-users.
In close collaboration with industry partners, a novel monitoring system has been installed to provide real-time measurements of all important water flows and bodies in the catchment including riverine discharge, precipitation, storm water drainage flow and groundwater levels.
CALL Copenhagen has helped problem owners and technology providers
- Set up a public-private innovation partnership
- Facilitate a full scale demonstration and documentation project
- Test and develop next level water management methodologies and technologies
- Demonstrate a more cost-efficient, integrated and market ready catchment monitoring system
A system prototype is demonstrated and validated in an operational catchment environment in collaboration with the regional government and the adjacent local governments and water utilities.
With the system’s joint data platform CALL has been able to facilitate cross-border collaboration and development of sustainable water management strategies.
