Whether complex simulation models or simplified assessment methods are used – the crucial point for reliable calculation results is the quality of the data basis.
Since very often investments amounting to millions depend on the calculation results it is indispensable to carefully acquire and determine the initial data. Measuring flow, level and substance concentrations within water and wastewater networks is one of the centrepieces of thoroughly obtaining fundamental data.
Moreover, it is only possible by collecting and systematically evaluating measurement data to verify whether certain measures work as planned and have the desired effect. Measuring therefore is a substantial element for self-monitoring and success monitoring in the field of urban drainage.
