Operational Forecasting

Integrated observations and predictions for water conveyance in natural or man-made channels provide warnings and guidance for response.

Storage and routing of water in reservoirs and channels are tools to optimize the management of water resources. Storing water helps ensure adequate supply to meet demand objectives in the near future. Increasing conveyance capacity helps mitigate the risks of flooding. Adequate lead time is required for control changes to be effective. Accurate data is needed to guide the amount of control change needed to be effective. Effective decisions require effective support.

AQUARIUS delivers high-quality data in real-time that reflect true changes in conditions both upstream and downstream of control structures. It provides predictive analysis using highly customizable storage and routing algorithms for all nodes in the system. Automated warnings can initiate action to reduce threats and optimize the beneficial uses of water.
