Maintaining stable water levels in irrigation canals is necessary for constant and high flows for irrigators. A TCC solution can help you to control upstream or downstream water level at a single point or control levels throughout an entire canal network.
Install a FlumeGate or SlipMeter at a site in your canal and it can automatically maintain constant a water level that you have selected using the keypad interface. For example you might want to maintain a certain level at the head of a canal, at the tail or any check structure along the canal. The gate leaf automatically moves to adjust for flow rate fluctuations that result from supply or demand changes.
By adding SCADA software such as SCADAConnect to a standalone FlumeGate you can manage changes to the desired canal water levels remotely. You will have real-time level and flow information at your fingertips and the ability to make adjustments to the required water level as frequently as necessary, without traveling to site.
With a Network Control Solution, a network of FlumeGates automatically maintains water levels in every section along the length of a single canal or throughout your entire irrigation district. FlumeGates automatically coordinate between themselves to adjust water levels in response to changes in flow that occur as a result of farmers beginning and ending their irrigations.
