You’re probably wondering what this page is all about… I have visited Torside Reservoir 6 times now over the last 3 years to photograph the unique overflow system that the reservoir has.
Unfortunately to my disappointment, it has never been overflowing! The closest I got was in Oct 2019 when I managed to visit a day either side of it overflowing, Somewhat frustrated and annoyed with myself, as its a 1hr 30 drive from home and for not getting the shot I wanted I wondering what I could do to rectify this situation.
To take it a step further I also set up a Google Sheet script to email me when the water level reaches 0.12m (overflows at 0.14m) so I can time my visit and hopefully capture the overflow in the right conditions. Fingers crossed!
I did think about sharing how I did each step of the problem by sharing my code, but it’s not really photography related is it, so haven’t botherd, anyway. I hope someone finds this page useful, and if you want your email adding to the notification list when the level reached 0.12m just drop me an email and ill add it.
Current Water Level
The overflow outlet will be overflowing if the gauge is in the red zone at 0.14m
