Sediment monitoring network

Sediment flow monitoring

VMM, Flanders

Numerous gauging stations keep aclose watch on the Flemish watercourses. Flemish Environmental Agency (VMM) continuously registers water and sediment flows in the unnavigable Flemish waterways.

In 2018, the sediment measuring network needed to be renewed and extended. As a subcontractor for Hemmis NV, Fluves installed different types of acoustic and optic sensors, such as Open Channel-Radar velocity sensors (Hydrovision) and Optical Backscatter (OBS) turbidity sensors (Campbell Scientific).
