Its not news that the environment is becoming more and more important as every day passes and we see more and more the effects man is having on the environment. New tools have been developed to assist in this situation and some old tools have also been repurposed to help out. One of these old tools is flowmeters which are being used not only to measure the impact we are having on our evironment, but helping to insure that new regulations are adhered to. Among the uses of environmental flowmeters
common today is the use of open channel flowmeters to determine river and stream flows which have a potential of flooding, measurement of industrial outfalls to determine the total volume of liquids discharged and much more.
