CASE STUDY

Local precipitation measurement network to improve water management 

OVERVIEW: PRECIPITATION MEASURING NETWORK OF THE MUNICIPALITY OF WELVER

The municipality of Welver in North Rhine-Westphalia is supplied fresh water by the Ruhr Valley Waterworks, but wastewater disposal is the town’s responsibility. Those responsibilities include the discharge of wastewater and rainwater as well as water from property drainage systems. For this purpose, Welver operates a network of combined sewage pumping stations.

Due to the increasing heavy rain events as an effect of climate change in recent years, the communities are more sensitized. The local precipitation measurement network supports the precaution against hazards and prevents damage to buildings, infrastructure and designed nature in the community. 

REQUIREMENTS

A reliable and durable precipitation sensor was needed to achieve timely flood risk detection at the pumping stations and to ensure real-time monitoring during heavy rainfall. The integration of the sensor into the existing control room infrastructure had to be quick and easy. 

SOLUTION

The municipality of Welver is using the heated precipitation sensor type 15189 at several locations to support and strengthen the work of the local water management.
