Operational Hydrology

It requires a lot efforts to establish a hydrometric network, as well as operate and maintain it properly. A balance between use of new technology and traditional manual methods is crucial to achieve the expected results required to design hydropower stations, other water infrastructure installations and for environmental purposes. The data must be collected not only for a few years, but through several periods of years making a reliable basis for prioritizing the use of water in a specific area. Here you will find some information about how LHS is working on a daily basis and in a long term perspective – together with NVE who is providing LHS with technical assistance.
