Hydrometric Networks

Better decision-making about water resources and flood management.

Hydrological and meteorological data collection

Hydrological monitoring networks help us optimise the use of increasingly scarce and unpredictable water resources by increasing our knowledge of surface and groundwater bodies. Climate change is making rainfall torrential and very localised. Hydrometric networks’ predictive models anticipate the forecast of rain so damage to reservoirs and watercourses can be avoided or mitigated during these episodes.

Hydrometric networks assist water resource management and optimal water use by providing real-time data on stored water, consumption by intakes, circulating flows and water demand. The data is also vital when there is a lack of water - an increasingly common occurrence - to facilitate better use, storage and distribution of water.

Hydrometric networks take automatic measurements of hydrological and meteorological parameters as well as monitor infrastructure for a specified catchment area. Knowing the real-time status of water bodies has changed the way water resources are managed. We can predict the behaviour of watercourses in specific scenarios, permitting precise operational decisions to be taken, for example, for reservoir intakes and downstream releases.

Our hydrology experts implement and calibrate hydraulic models of river courses so that hydrometric networks act as early warning systems. Our specialists offer continuous support and can predict flood episodes with sufficient time to mitigate adverse effects and possible damages. They are up-to-speed on all the latest, advanced telecommunications and information systems, a vital part of knowing which technology best suits your requirements.

Our technological abilities enable us to integrate all information, data exploitation and analysis applications in distributed information systems, in cloud storage and on-site.

Thanks to the implementation of our hydrometric networks, with integrated automatic monitoring technology, ADASA makes water a more predictable and controllable element.
