River Level Monitoring (and possible flood gate)

I am raising funds primarily to purchase and install river level monitoring equipment to monitor the level of a local river.

This project is using Flexible funding and will receive all pledges made by 6:49pm 12th June 2017

The purpose of installing this equipment to monitor the river level is to ensure the safety of our animals by having access to up-to-date river levels and can prepare and predict if a flood event is likely to occur and ensure all equipment and animals are safe away from the river and flooding. In addition to this, I am also thinking of installing a flood barrier in a ditch to prevent the river from backing-up the ditch and flooding; this means that flooding can then only occur from the river bursting it's banks as opposed to backflow up a ditch. However, I haven't 100% fully decided on this element of the project yet.
