The Bureau of Reclamation's Provo Area Office is a leader in the development of computerized canal and reservoir monitoring and control technologies. Low-cost, solar-powered automation is revolutionizing the management of water projects throughout the Intermountain West. Where automation systems are now in operation, water managers have improved their ability to closely monitor and better control canal flows and reservoir releases largely from locations. Automation technology provides water managers:

  • Instant control over canal flows
  • Accurate timing of water deliveries
  • Low-cost retrofits
  • Easy installation and maintenance
  • Expandable, user-friendly systems
  • Internet-based displays
  • Camera surveillance and alarms
