LowFlows Enterprise

LowFlows Enterprise is designed for the high volume, or regional user, to estimate river flows for any river reach in the UK and the impacts of water use on those flows, even where measured flow data is not available.

LowFlows Enterprise is used as a best practice tool for estimating flows in ungauged catchments by the Environment Agency, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency, the Northern Ireland Environment Agency and UK water companies.

LowFlows Enterprise shares many of the features of LowFlows 2, with these added features:

  • automatic catchment definition
  • a geographically referenced database for storing information describing reservoirs, abstractions and discharges in a catchment
  • extensive modelling facilities for evaluating the impact of water uses on river flows and how these might vary in a catchment.

LowFlows estimates are also available via our Flow Estimation Service.
