Other Services:

  • trained staff are available to measure streamflow volumes if a landowner is interested in the amount of flow in a stream. We can also set up staff gauges and develop rating curves so the owner can determine flow in a stream at any time throughout the year
  • flow monitoring studies for compliance with environmental permits i.e. surface water takings, effluent discharges, micro hydro production

Basic cost of these services is $40/hr plus mileage. Proposals can also be prepared for those monitoring projects which may require more than a short term involvement of our personnel.
