Scour monitoring around underwater structures

The threat of scour poses a serious risk to structures founded underwater. Are your bridges safe from collapse? WES may have the answer.

Bridge in high flow

We have at our displosal the unique "Tell Tail" Scour Monitoring System (.pdf)  which was originally developed by HR Wallingford Ltd in response to a pressing need to come up with a cheap and reliable solution to this serious problem. Over the years these systems have been installed at a number UK rail and road bridges thus providing reassurance to engineers regarding their structural integrity.

Apart from providing the system hardware, we can also undertake associated surveys including bathymetry, current measurements, bed sampling and video inspections.
