River Level Monitoring (and possible flood gate)

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.

Unfortunately, this project was not successful

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.
