Water is one of the world’s most important resources. We take our responsibility in monitoring Victoria’s surface water resources very seriously.
We collect surface water quality and quantity data from over 900 sites as part of our field-based operation and maintenance activities for the Regional Water Monitoring Partnership, which is managed by the Victorian Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP).
This partnership has more than 40 member organisations, including local government bodies, catchment management authorities, water authorities, the Bureau of Meteorology, and private industry. They have partnered to reduce duplication and increase efficiency, an aim we are pleased to support.
Ventia operates and maintains surface water monitoring sites, as well as collecting and verifying data on level, flow, rainfall and water quality.
We are proud to assist DELWP with its emergency response to flood events as another part of our service agreement. We use the Event Reporting Radio Telemetry System (ERRTS) as well as our in house designed Portable Automated Logging Systems (PALS) technology to relay real time water level information and imagery to State Emergency Services and Bureau of Meteorology.
Over the life of the contract we have undertaken more than 50,000 site visits and collected over 54 million hours of data.
Ventia Hydrographers have undertaken more than 25,000 in-stream measurements during the contract history.
