New Stormwater Forecast Service Announced
Across the country stormwater guidance and regulations call for stormwater managers and planners to be aware of weather conditions. Some regions have specific requirements for use of National Weather Service forecast precipitation data.
How does a busy stormwater professional keep track of the what, when, and where of rainfall forecasts?
Stormwater Forecast supports a range of applications—like pre-event site inspections, rain event action plans, stormwater sampling schedules, staffing decisions, construction and industrial site management, and asset protection activities. This is done by letting users select what information they want to receive and when they want to receive it. Proactive rainfall forecast notifications, based on National Weather Service forecast data, are sent to subscribers when forecasts of probability of precipitation or rainfall depth are met.
Examples of email alerts can be viewed on the website and a free 30-day trial is offered. See www.stormwaterforecast.com.
