Toowoomba Flood Warning


Toowoomba Regional Council


Toowoomba, QLD




Following the Toowoomba floods, the Toowoomba Regional Council engaged the Aquamonix team to design and install a Flood Warning System on all sections of roadway deemed high risk.

How we helped

We fully designed, manufactured, installed and commissioned the TRC solution in 2013 on time and on budget.

System features:
• Flood warning signs on roads affected by flash flooding under autonomous local control by the nearby water level station.
• Automated transfer/export of critical data to other stake-holders such as the Bureau of Meteorology.
• Remote monitoring stations for rainfall and water level.
• Redundant data servers at Council’s office and works depot.
• Redundant communications systems using UHF radio and 3G cellular routes.
• SCADA for convenient visualisation of system status and for dissemination of alarm messages.
• STREAMS track management software integration.
• Flexible SCADA backbone allows for future expandability.

Our quality assurance

Local Buy Supplier

Local Buy helps alleviate the need for open market tenders by managing the procurement compliance burden on behalf of all Local Government agencies. All Local Buy arrangements are compliant with the Local Government Regulations 2012 and Local Government Act 2009 and provide Local Government entities with the assurance that all suppliers are vetted and compliant based on a comprehensive tender, evaluation, and approval process. Purchasing through a Local Buy prequalified supply arrangement negates the need for Councils to go through the formal tender process.
