At Portolan, we are at the forefront of innovative water measurement projects. By combining technology, community engagement, and data-driven strategies, we aim to forge a sustainable path towards a future where water resources are protected, conserved, and allocated wisely.
WE-ACT: Climate Smart Water Allocation, stands at the forefront of our efforts. This
project harnesses cutting-edge technology and data-driven approaches to support water management practices.
WE-ACT represents a groundbreaking endeavor that aims to optimize water allocation in the face of climate variability and change. By integrating sensor-based technology, weather forecasting, and data analytics, WE-ACT empowers decision-makers with real-time insights into water availability, demand, and usage patterns.
In WE-ACT project, Portolan is leading the work package 1 about improving the existing network in cooperation with CAIAG and University of Friburg.
Climate and River Stations
In addition to WE-ACT, we champion the installation of climate and river stations as part of our broader water measurement initiatives. These stations serve as critical monitoring hubs, gathering essential data on precipitation, river flow and climatic patterns. By deploying a network of these stations, we gain a comprehensive understanding of the water dynamics in a region, facilitating informed decision-making for water management projects. Ultimately, these climate and river stations contribute to building resilience against climate change impacts and facing extreme events.
