Why Water Level Sensors?
According to “US National Climate Assessment” the frequency and intensity of floods is a growing threat everywhere. Unfortunately, every year, many unprepared communities find it the hard way. Organizations and communities that proactively monitor floods are more effective in mitigating against them. At ToltHawk, we do flood monitoring sensors. Our sensors help you keep an eye on water level and also track its history.
Furthermore, if your watershed has a network of ToltHawk sensors, the prediction of the water level and flooding is greatly enhanced. Having a tool that helps monitor live data and that also gives you a better prediction modal will help your emergency personal sleep better at night.
Customers who have made investment in ToltHawk have seen an immediate payback upon the onset of the first potential or actual flood in resource costs and more effective utilization of their resources. ToltHawk is a technologically advanced electronic level solution that can help mitigate flood threat by measuring, tracking, analyzing, predicting, and warning against these events in advance. Furthermore, the rich data created by these devices also equip hydrologists, ecologists, other scientists, developers, and policymakers with empirical evidence needed to sit on the same table, to agree, and help plan water-related issues.
ToltHawk’s product goal is to have an accurate, reliable, and economical sensing solution to enable communities to make better decisions about their water resources and the environment. We are the only water-level sensor/software system on the market at the moment that is able to affordably and successfully send live data to users and help with predicting water level movement.

ToltHawk supports a variety of sensors for measuring environmental and soil properties. For open water such as streams, rivers, and reservoirs, it uses advanced, patented ultrasonic technology to measure water levels with better than half an inch (1 cm) precision. Since there’s no contact with water, the device is almost maintenance free, once installed. For wells and reservoirs deeper than 32 feet, it uses a mmWave or pressure transducer to measure water depth.
The extremely efficient computer algorithm that drives these devices allows them to run at a stretch for 12-36 months (depending on upload cycle) without requiring recharging. A solar PV option allows even longer maintenance-free operation. Use ToltHawk for water level measurement in any type of water body: rivers, streams, ponds, sewer. The sensor data can be used in a variety of personal, industrial, scientific and public safety applications.
