Data from Automatic water quality monitors and gauging stations on the Bedford Ouse are telemetered to the Cambridge office of the Creat Ouse River Division of the Anglian Water Authority. A mini-computer has been installed to log data from the out-stations, convert data to meaningful units, prepare data summaries, check for alarm conditions and forecast flow and quality up to 80 hours ahead at key locations along the river system. The system provides information on flow and quality conditions in real time and has been used to forecast the movement of pollutants along the river system. A generalised suite of computer programs have been developed for data management and forecasting and a micro-processor controlled water quality monitor is currently under development.
