  2. For a different take on the signs in Devon, have a look at https://www.devonlive.com/news/local-news/horse-drawn-barge-near-misses-3182200 .
  3. Advanced Mobile Location is available to the emergency services, as long as the phone used is recent enough to provide it, https://eena.org/aml/ . https://eena.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/2019_07_17_AML_Report_Card_Update.pdf (68 page PDF) says 60% of calls in the UK do provide a location. This will no doubt improve as people replace their phones.
  4. No idea! However, at a guess, I wonder if getting involved in high profile events is so that the technology gets noticed & can then be developed as a production solution. They are also providing the charger for the VW ID.R https://www.aquafuelresearch.com/ & https://www.volkswagen-newsroom.com/en/press-releases/a-vessel-for-technology-beyond-motorsport-the-charging-of-the-idr-system-5041 .
  5. Unless they have changed since this article, they are modified Diesel engines using a byproduct of biodiesel production https://www.fiaformulae.com/en/news/2016/june/insight-formula-e-s-emission-free-charging/
  6. I saw the location tag on the charging station and the reason clicked immediately. There really is not a lot in the area it is intended for. Maybe have a read of https://thedriven.io/2018/12/14/diesel-charge-evs-remote-locations-greener-than-you-think/ to see the logic of this solution.
  7. Kettleshulme is a village which has a stream that flows into Todd Brook above the reservoir. I've just stumbled across this video of damage caused by the rainfall https://youtu.be/LBadbPs6_v0 , also a video at https://www.newsflare.com/video/308209/ross-nursery-in-kettleshulme-near-toddbrook-dam-took-the-brunt-of-the-cloud-burst?a=on The village pub also has some photos of the flooding on its Facebook page https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2688859381188500&id=154838791257251
  8. Do you have any details of these inflow sluices? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toddbrook_Reservoir describes what is a passive arrangement that diverts flow into the reservoir only when the river is high enough. https://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/77820 being a photo of the wier (by the same person who took the 2005 photo of the spillway). The wier flowing is shown at the start of the video I linked to earlier in the thread ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXLVRGxsWgc&feature=youtu.be ). It was also reported, https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-derbyshire-49189955 , that the water flowing into the reservoir was being diverted using materials being flown in by the helicopter.
  9. https://www.sciencemediacentre.org/expert-reaction-to-news-that-the-whaley-bridge-dam-has-been-damaged/ may be of interest.
  10. Somebody was asking if there were any pre CRT photos of the spillway. So far I have only been able to find one, from 2005 at https://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/77850 . There is also a few seconds of video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXLVRGxsWgc&feature=youtu.be at 55 seconds in, from June 2012. There are also a few recent, April 2019, photos of the spillway HERE .
  11. The pumps are being used to supplement the draw down valves. See the report from "New Civil Engineer" https://www.newcivilengineer.com/latest/whaley-bridge-dam-engineers-reduce-reservoir-target-level-06-08-2019/?eea=SHFEcFNZN2c1RDVaaXBlSHFNUmxGRm0xaFIvYldLajdGWVdEcXlRODh1WT0=&n_hash=63&mkt_tok=eyJpIjoiTkdZMk1URXpNREV4Tm1WaiIsInQiOiJma3RKclhoT3BqTHhqVU9Ed2c0VmhlQUdsdWZ2WWhRcEo3ODBEdGRVS0cxZTVtNVRKZ3FwVFRYRU03ZU8rUnBVUG5oMTNyRWt1MmhzM1ppa3hKMDhsZTU2eFBwd0ZnbDZ2RHlqenVwTEp2XC9xQVhXcXpCN2VjTkpKSXI4WVRUck0ifQ%3D%3D "We opened the emergency values and sandbagged the top of the weir. Once we had done that and started to get pumps on site, we actually broke the crest of the auxiliary spillway weir to try and increase the flow down that direction. Doing this brought the water down below the primary weir level.”
