Deployments Continue In Challenging Conditions

The latest in-channel, lined measurement location brought online last week complete with calibrated flow sensors, sending near-real-time data back to SWIIM Server.  We have quality, cross-calibrated data flowing at each of our sites and continue to complete deployments thoughout California.

We are able to combine measurements via pipe, in-channel, lined ditches as well as non-lined channels.  Tail flow sensors to capture end-of-field return flows as well. We have sensors that work on and off of headgates - several options to chose from, based upon local conditions. This, coupled with our consumptive use data (via instruments and remote sensing) allow us to account for the elements of the crop-water budget like no one else - the same way that your CPA helps you manage and track your financial accounts.  We have truly shown our ability to deploy SWIIM with multiple sensor methods in very challenging conditions.

Lined Channel SWIIM Deployment

The SWIIM team has been hard at work on new deployment sites - this time, a lined channel with a built-in weir:

We connect our sensors and calibrate against a second data source.  Whether it be an unlined channel, lined channel, headgate/turn-out measurement or pipe flow (or, in most case, a combination of these methods for each farm), SWIIM aggregates this data, alongside weather and remote sensing sources to close and report upon the crop-water budget.  Your on-farm water accountants hard at work, proving conservation activities throughout the Western US.
