New Orleans Dike and Levee Radar Level Sensor

When the city of New Orleans needed reliable level measurement of their dikes and levees, they turned to Flowline. Post Katrina, the city has made tremendous progress in bolstering its flood control infrastructure and technology. Level measurement plays a key role in this architecture, and hundreds of Flowline level sensors are deployed throughout their system. Recently, the city has shifted to radar sensors in these exposed outdoor applications because radar is unaffected by wind or rain. The encapsulated sensor is designed for suspended, bracket mounted installation over dams, rivers, canals or reservoirs, in all types of weather. The radar sensor provides continuous level data to the SCADA, which monitors the levees and controls the dikes. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
