Did you know that floods are one of the most deadly and damaging natural disasters known to mankind!
This site is dedicated to reducing injuries, deaths, and property damage caused by floods. Reliable flood forecasting and early detection of flood conditions are critical components of an effective local flood warning program. For nearly two decades, user groups have maintained close associations with private sector vendors, consultants and government agencies involved with the business of flood warning. This has contributed substantially to the technological advancement of automated real-time monitoring systems. The technologies and methods described at this site illustrate some of the capabilities which have evolved, resulting in many successful flood warnings and partnerships. In addition to flood warning, these technologies are useful in many other areas of water resource management and planning.
