Flow Measurement Information

Revised: September 10, 2007

The main purpose of this page is to post topics related to flow measurement to help the staff familiarized themselves with the various types of measuring devices, their operation, and the basic principles to obtain a reliable water measurement.

Measuring devices fall under two main categories: open channels flow measurement devices such as flumes, weirs, etc, and closed conduits measurement devices such as clamp-on ultrasonic meters, propellers etc. This page will be updated as additional information becomes available.
