Walnut Canyon Dam deliveries of imported, untreated Colorado River Water from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. It’s reservoir is capable of storing 920 million gallons of imported water.
The dam has two weather stations, a series of piezometers, tilt meters and three recorders with triaxial accelerometers. The accelerometers are located at the crest, left abutment and downstream. These sensor systems work seamlessly with the QUAKELOGIC’s SHM platform.
This platform, continuously monitoring earthquakes within 200 km radius, sends immediate notifications to the dam’s owner about structural performance after earthquakes.
