Ambiental early flood warning system
It is impossible to completely eliminate flooding, and even with structural flood defences in place, there is always a residual risk. With increasing frequency, the impact of damaging and extreme flood events is taking an ever larger toll, particularly in developing countries and vulnerable communities. Although these events cannot be prevented, advance warning and pre-planning can often reduce the impact from flooding more than any other single form of flood mitigation.
React faster to flash flooding and surface water incidents
With the correct early flood warning systems and planning, it is possible to significantly reduce loss of life, and the damage to properties and infrastructure caused by flash flooding.
Predict when and where you need your response teams
Our real-time flood-forecasting system lets you track and understand where water will go, how fast it will move, and critically, where and when it could cause problems. Predicted flooding triggers automated warnings, giving you more time to plan your response.
Help communities help themselves
With pre-planning, community involvement, and innovative methods of disseminating messages to communities at risk, the most effective response to flooding can often be taken by local people themselves if they are forewarned.
Making complex calculations fast
Our integrated systems keeps track of the full hydrological process as a flood event unfolds. It combines live weather radar data and rainfall measurements with topographical information, details about soil types, land use and drainage to simulate what will happen several hours into the future. It can also include data on river flow, and river and groundwater levels to ensure the models are as accurate as possible.
Easy to customise locally
We work with national and local emergency and planning teams, adapting our systems to fit your scenarios and focusing them on any local area. You can customise the automated warnings, monitoring key hot spots and setting warning levels.
A UK Local Authority Response Suite
We have developed a specific early flood warning system for local authorities in the UK that includes all the essential tools needed to meet the requirements set out in the Flood and Water Management Act 2010.
