The Department of Meteorology and Hydrology states that water monitoring devices will be installed nationwide in due course to aid with flood control.
Although both human and automatic systems are utilized to monitor water levels, most river water monitoring stations currently rely on human operation rather than automation.
“There are 18 river water monitoring stations along the Ayeyawady River. The river’s conditions are then monitored and reported every day. It is typically tested at 6:30 am, 12:00 pm, and 6:30 pm three times a day. Recently, plans have been made to install water monitoring sensors at all stations due to the necessity for real-time information due to changing weather conditions. Here, some stations will need to be replaced and installed, while some will need to be installed brand-new. This financial year, it will be put into effect,” said an official from the Department of Meteorology and Hydrology.
As a river water monitoring work, the water monitoring works launch at 14 significant rivers across the country, including 18 river water monitoring stations along the Ayeyawady River, eight stations along the Chindwin River, one station along Sittoung River and two stations along the Thanlwin River. — ASH/MKKS
