Proactive Data Collection for Flood Warning


Sponsored by: OTT HydroMet

As water managers and engineers, it’s important to understand our watersheds, urban landscapes, and their response to extreme events like heavy precipitation and rising surface water levels. Of the numerous tools at our disposal, there are many benefits to a flood warning system, including knowing in time where flooding issues could occur, enabling reactive action, and protecting lives while minimizing damage.

Join Forester University and sponsor OTT HydroMet for this free, live, educational webinar as we discuss urban flooding and the value of data collection for flood warning and protection. We will examine what an ideal flood warning system might look like in your community and how data can help convince your community about the importance of being prepared for a flooding emergency.

This course will explore readily available data from U.S. Federal Agencies—such as the U.S. Geological Survey and National Weather Services—and the increasing need for greater data density to augment spatial and temporal data sets feeding critical predictive models.

Learning Objectives 
By participating in this webinar, attendees will:

  • Receive an overview of flooding in the U.S. and factors that contribute to flooding
  • Understand the role of data collection in organizations like the USGS and NWS
  • Learn the importance of flood warning systems and their components
  • Explore how data can help convince your community about the importance of being prepared for a flooding emergency
