Whatever your stormwater monitoring needs, you need an effective tool to detect excessive amounts.
Your stormwater monitoring plan has to be designed for the worst case scenario. But what is the best way find that out? A recent IECA-sponsored webinar highlighted the use of the NOAA Atlas 14 as an essential tool for rainfall monitoring.
Rainfall monitoring during periods of intense rainfall is important. Not only can stormwater carry higher amounts of pathogens, but it also increases the flow rate to a wastewater treatment facility. Higher flow rates can exceed the facilities’ treatment capacity, impacting treatment performance.
WaterWatch PRO's precise rainfall monitoring shows you the maximum amounts for the locations monitored. This way, you'l know the most that has fallen. From the Precip History for your location, click on View Historic Maximums. That shows you the most that has fallen in a 1 and 24-hour period over various year frequencies. These excessive rainfall events enhance your stormwater monitoring, prompting necessary action.
When actual rainfall detected by WaterWatch PRO exceeds any of the NOAA Atlas 14 values for your location, the amounts in the Precip History turn red. This helps stormwater monitoring professionals know when there's been too much rain. When you upgrade to the Silver or Gold feature package, you can receive a text notification when this happens as well.
