Dam Safety Solutions

Emalte's Inflow, Water Level & Dam Structure Monitoring Systems ensure that critical data is continuously being recorded and transmitted back to a central monitoring & control system.

Emalte's Inflow, Water Level & Dam Structure Monitoring Systems ensure that critical data is continuously being recorded and transmitted back to a central monitoring & control system.

In the event of potential significant rises in upstream water levels that may or will present a risk to on-site personnel and to the public, our 4 Phase Dam Safety Solution ensures dam operators are fully informed and can provide early warning of impending danger to on-site personnel and warn the public:

EMALTE 4 PHASE DAM SAFETY SOLUTION

Catchment Hydrological Monitoring System:

Our team of Engineers and Hydrologists examine the typography of the catchment and determine the appropriate number of water level and rainfall measuring stations, in accordance with forecast accuracy and lead time

Equipment Involved

  1. Automatic Rainfall Reader (ARR)
    Options: Automatic Tipping Bucket measures rainfall
  2. Automatic Water Level Recorder (AL-131 Series)

    Options: AL-131-BS | AL-131-RS | . AL-131-FS
    Measures water levels in streams and rivers upstream

Dam Structure monitoring instrumentation

With water levels and rainfall being monitored upstream we now provide Dam Operators with real-time data related to reservoir water level meteorological parameters and dam structure measurements, including pore water pressure, water seepage and strong motion.

Equipment Involved

  1. Emalte Meteorological Station (EMMET-100)
    Includes ARR, but also measures other meteorological data
  2. Automatic Water Level Recorder (AL-131 Series) Options: AL-131-BS | AL-131-RS | . AL-131-FS
    Measures water levels in streams and rivers upstream
  3. Dam Structure Instrumentaion
    1. V-Notch Seepage Weir
    2. Strong Motion recorder (tri-axial type with GPS)
    3. Vibrating Wire Piezometer – Pore Water Pressure Recording

Emergency Public Warning & Mass Notification SyStemS

The emalte solution includes world class hardware and software to ensure that if required the dam operator can initiate the public warning system which is based on Alert Inform and Direct. That is an audible tone to Alert ; a pre-recorded voice message to Inform; and live PA announcements to Direct, thus eliminating confusion and maintaining order.
