Brent/Lee (Thames)

As part of the EC H2020 NAIAD project a series of real time flood alert gauges and Natural Flood Management (Nature Based Solution) monitoring systems have been installed in river basins throughout Europe.  These gauges are low cost, open source designs developed as part of the FreeStation project.  Below is live data from the gauges in the River Brent (Stanmore Country Park) and  Lee (Trent Park).  Further information on these gauges can be found for Trent Park and Stanmore Park.  The data shows live hourly and daily mean water level in relation to the level that would cause flooding of surrounding land by the river.  Live  air pressure and temperature data are also shown alongside a 5 day forecast of the same.

Thames21 has been funded by DEFRA to install, with the aid of volunteers and the local warden,  two leaky dams in the upper part of the Silk Stream catchment of the River Brent at Stanmore Country Park. We are monitoring the water levels behind one of them.

Parts of the borough of Enfield, north London, have suffered from severe flooding. The Salmons Brook Flood Alleviation Scheme was completed in 2006 at a cost of £15.3 million and protects more than 2500 homes. However, some areas still remain at risk, and so Thames21, funded by DEFRA and in collaboration with the London Borough of Enfield Council, have constructed two leaky dams, with the aid of local volunteers, to slow the flow of Merryhills Brook. We are monitoring flow levels above one of the leaky dams.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 730497.
