Water level sensors help Australian irrigation
Irrigation management is serious business in Australia especially within the Murray-Darling Basin, a 1,000,000 square kilometer watershed that is home to Australia’s most productive agricultural land. The basin’s 23 rivers have some of the lowest and most variable flows in the world. A massive system of dams, lakes and canals stores water from mountain snowmelt and seasonal rains and distributes it to farms and communities throughout the growing season.
