Solar Installations - Hamlands
you walk from Teddington Lock to Riverside Drive, on the
left hand side you will see a solar installation. There
are a further two on the Ham Lands. People have wondered
as to their purpose. They are remote sensing devices.
The units cover deep bore holes and are part of the Lower
Thames Strategy, the long term plan for managing fluvial
flooding between Windsor and Teddington. The units monitor
ground water levels which affect the capacity of the river
to accommodate water.
