Telemetry sensors — Rainfall and Stream Heights

Rainfall and Stream Height gauges owned by Brisbane City Council. This is raw, unprocessed data.

Council installs and maintains telemetry gauges at various locations across Brisbane as part of its hydrometric network. These gauges form part of the Bureau of Meteorology Flood Warning Network. This Brisbane City Council gauge information (raw data) is passed onto the Bureau of Meteorology which they display on their public website via various interfaces.

The hydrometric gauges:

  • collect real-time information on water levels and rainfall
  • provide information to trigger flood alerts and warnings
  • provide information to trigger flooded road signage/flashing lights
  • provide historic flood information for use in hydrology and hydraulic modelling.
