Audit time

After a succesful 'open day' last weekend today we had the pleasure of hosting a team from the Environment Agency.

Their task was to audit and review the way Torrs Hydro monitor and manage the extraction of water from the river through 'Archie' and back into the river.

After seeing how the scheme works and the water levels are monitored we reviewed the data that is collected every minute showing the level of water going over the weir, amount of power generated etc

Initial feedback is that we run a very tight ship and our record keeping is very precise, helped enormously by the automated system.
