Where two worlds meet: metrology and urban drainage
Successful urban drainage depends on diverse monitoring under the heading of metrology. Jac van Tuijn hears from editors of a recent book on this topic about the issues the book has sought to address, and the huge collaborative effort that has brought these insights together.
For real-time decision making in urban drainage and stormwater management, it is crucial to have a reliable monitoring system that includes weather predictions, rainfall, water levels and discharge data. It also helps when scientists and practitioners have a good understanding of this area of monitoring – metrology, say three experts who have brought together a comprehensive book on this crossover of two worlds: Metrology in Urban Drainage and Stormwater Management: Plug and Pray.
