Water Retention Pond Vault Ultrasonic Level Measurement

 Water Retention Pond Vault Ultrasonic Level Transmitter

When a California municipality needed reliable level measurement of their water retention ponds, they turned to Flowline. The community receives 16″ of rain per year, yet most stormwater passes from concrete gutter to drainage with little ground water replenishment. To mitigate this, the city has installed cascading ponds at creek sites to capture, screen and pump water from the lower ponds back to the top ponds for further recharging. There the operator said that silt and debris in the pump vault often clogged past pressure level transmitters, and they wanted reliable level measurement. For this reason, Flowline suggested our ultrasonic level sensor installed in a standpipe with a screen on the pipe end to eliminate debris from entering. The ultrasonic sensors provide reliable level data to their SCADA, which monitors the lower ponds and controls the pumps. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
