Xstrata is developing the Macarthur River Open Cut Coal Mine in the Northern Territory.

Major diversion works of several large rivers required a hydrographic monitoring network to be established. The system was installed in Dec 2002 and has recorded several major flood events including the 1 in 100 year flooding in January 2003.

  • Remote sites on major river system
  • Network of new Hydrographic Stations
  • Upgrade of existing Gauging Stations
  • Tilting Pole Station for flood protection
  • River Sensing via Gas Bubbler
  • Solar Power, Data Logger
  • Satellite telemetry link
  • Automatic Samplers for EPA compliance

The system provided a full set of rainfall and river level data through a 1 in 100 year flood event in Jan 2003 with over 650mm rainfall and river levels rising 20 m.
