One of the main benefits for recreational river users is the ability to check and see the river height and colour. If the water is too high or too coloured you might have a wasted journey. The cameras have been strategically positioned in the upper, middle and lower river to allow the monitoring of angling opportunities throughout the system and will have many other additional benefits such as flood monitoring.
