The Tulare County Resource Management Agency (“RMA”) has installed several IoT (Internet of Things) water level sensors throughout the County to assist in monitoring stream levels and areas of concern for flooding, the use of which has proved invaluable to flood control operations in the County. The devices use a sonic sensor to determine stream height within 1/100th of a foot, are battery powered with a solar option, and communicate data to the cloud via cellular networks. Alarms and notifications may be set based on data from individual sensors for specific water levels or specific rates of increase in the water level, which may be targeted towards first responders or the public to warn residents of impending road closures or dangerous conditions. This presentation outlines various applications of these sensors by the County.
