Webcam provides flooding updates

First published in News

Two businesses have pulled together to create a flood monitoring system for Braford on Avon.

A webcam positioned on the Bridge Tea Rooms by Varn Media, based in the town, will give regular live updates of the Town Bridge to allow travellers to check if the bridge is passable in times of flooding and snow.

To access the webcam updates, go to www.varnmedia.co.uk/boa-bridge-watch/

Whilst It's quite a public spirited gesture to be applauded - notable that nobody seems to have mentioned the river level monitor a little bit downstream :

Which can give a good indication of a flood situation - and that hydro power scheme supposedly being installed by the Moulton Estate at Greenland Mill in the new development must have a precision water level measuring facility surely a local school project to do a little web site with subscribable text messages etc can be sorted out - they'll need that even if flood defences are eventually installed....

Excellent facility

Switch it to live transmission, add a zoom option and 'lorry watch' could monitor at home in the warm with their feet up.
