Why to build dam and water reservoir warning systems

Dams and water reservoirs play a key role in controlling floods and landslides, water supply management, irrigation, and the like. They are built as safe structures, complying with the strict standard requirements. However, there are still threats such as natural disasters or human-made activities that can result in their mechanical damage, whereby endangering the population property and the environment in an inundation area.

Thanks to advanced monitoring, warning, and notification systems installed in the surroundings of dams and water reservoirs, you will obtain a reliable solution in case of an emergency.

By early warning, you mainly prevent the dramatic loss of human lives in emergencies.

Description of the dam and water reservoir warning systems

The dam and water reservoir early warning systems are designed as mostly small to medium-sized, integrated monitoring, warning and notification systems, typically consisting of 5 to 30 electronic sirens. They are equipped with the Vektra® software applications (SCADA, Warning, and Notification) for the individual systems as follows:

  • The monitoring system, monitoring the risk of a dam rupture or damage.
  • The warning system, covering by a warning signal the area that gets flooded within an hour of damaging the dam.
  • The notification system, informing the persons in charge (the first responders) of emergency via voice or text message.

 

The monitoring system
and sensor network that

  • Indicate any damage to the dam in good time and
  • Make use of at least three different types of sensors to increase reliability and prevent the occurrence of false alarms.

The control centre that

  • Automatically activates the necessary warning and notification functions when critical values are detected in the monitoring system
    • visual and acoustic alerts
    • the pre-set response time of the operational personnel
    • the automatic sounding of electronic sirens and notification
  • Guarantees tight security thanks to 100 % secure back-up technology

 

 

 

 

 

The internal and external
The Pavian electronic sirens that:

  • Produce high acoustic pressure over a great distance
  • Ensure perfect intelligibility of live voice reproduction
  • Demonstrate their high reliability due to:
    • their full operability even in case of a power failure
    • their full functionality in extreme temperatures
    • advanced autodiagnostic functions
  • Allow using multiple power-supply methods
  • Provide communications with the control centre via radio and line communications channels.

Communications infrastructure that

  • Ensures communications between the control centre and the other elements of the warning system
  • Allows the connection of the dam early warning system to the national warning system

 

Responsible persons/Responders to be notified that are

  • Informed of the occurrence of an emergency situation by phone or text message
  • Urgently summoned to their offices and rescue operations
