Open channels are an efficient way to feed wastewater treatment facilities but pose a challenge because the flow rate can be difficult to measure with traditional devices. Until recently, radar level measurement devices have been cost-prohibitive for most municipalities. Newer advancements, however, have brought the cost down significantly, so it is now feasible for wastewater plant managers to consider adopting the technology for open-channel applications.
