Does anyone know who we have to speak to to get windometer fixed for Melville water? It's been reading zeros for days.

Sail over there with a can of crc and give it a squirt.
It's probably jammed with bird ****.

Na there was wind there on the weekend and it's been reading zero the whole time. It's cactus so I was wondering who we contact to get it fixed coz I don't want to drive half an hour to the river for no wind.

The absence of this wind gauge is getting a bit frustrating now with the sea breezes starting up. Does anyone have an update?

UWA Engineers need to write a work instruction to tell the tradesperson how to repair it. Only when consulting SME on how to repair and reduce risk, they're not willing to accept a tradesmen's advice and risk assessment.
A 5 year study on the safe replacement of anemometers in water bodies has now been started, only they need funding.
