Telemetry Stations

The Department has upgraded its hydrological stations to telemetry stations since 1985, the first stations were installed in Batang Sadong River Basin at Serian, Krusen, Meringgu and Gedong stations. With the telemetry stations, data/information can be obtained immediately on line by way of satellite, General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) or other means of communication even for stations located in the remote areas which are difficult and challenging to access. The ability to provide real time rainfall and water level on-line enable close monitoring of the development of floods at critical flood prone areas and drought situation in the river basin. This will then allow for the proper, timely and smooth co-ordination of essential disaster relief operations and management to the affected areas.
