Hydrological observation network modernization. Water measurement stations


Lithuanian Hydrometeorological Service under the Ministry of Environment


2007/04 – 2008/08

Project description:

In the course of project implementation automatic water measurement stations were equipped at the 5 rivers of Lithuania, i.e. in the Nemunas near Lazdėnai, in the Leitė near Kulynai, in the Gėgė near Plaškiai, in the Akmena-Danė near Klaipėda and in the Merkys near Jašiūnai. Recently quite large floods used to occur at these rivers. The modern equipment, manufactured by the German company “SEBA Hydrometrie”, was installed in the automatic water measurement stations; the equipment registers the water level, the water and air temperature every 15 minutes and expediently passes these data to the hydrologists. The additional information, provided by the new water measurement stations, will allow increasing of precision of the issued forecasts.
