SmartRiver - real time flood alert, forecasting and assessment of flood mitigation infrastructure

The SmartRiver system brings together low cost monitoring technology from FreeStation with the WaterWorld and EcoActuary Policy Support Systems to develop and deploy reliable, low maintenance, continuous monitoring of weather and water level for river basins around the world.  The stations that we deploy measure rainfall, temperature, humidity, air pressure and water level, reporting these near real time to a web-based flood alert system which is available for all to use and works alongside the EcoActuary tool for better understanding insurance risk by flooding and drought and the role of grey and green infrastructure in mitigating those risks.
