Fully Optical Sensing System Installed at Lake Rockwell Spillway Dam in Akron, Ohio


Part of a system of three reservoirs that provide water to over 300,000 people in Akron, Ohio, theLake Rockwell Spillway is crucial to maintaining the flow of water. Through the installation of Micron Optics’ optical sensors and interrogators, the spillway is now monitored around the clock for cracks and bowing of the walls. The pre-existing optical network allowed integration of FBG sensors with the security cameras for easy information access.

To learn more about what sensors and instruments were chosen and how they were installed along the spillway, the full case study can be found here: Akron Spillway Dam , or you can contact us at[email protected]
