Lower Rio Grande Valley Real Time Surface Water Monitoring Pilot Program

Status: In progress

This project will focus on developing a pilot project for an early flood warning system; a tool to evaluate real-time monitoring of water bodies to assist in prompt decision-making during storm events. The team will deploy one Real Time Hydrologic Station (RTHS) in the Lower Rio Grande Valley (LRGV) to help demonstrate how the system can aid stormwater engineers and researchers understand the hydrological behavior in the region. The end goal of the project is to help facilitate inter-jurisdictional collaborations and holistic flood, water quality and ecological management in the LRGV area. The project team will also develop a website to promote the RTHS pilot program and disseminate information through six workshops to residents in the counties of Willacy, Hidalgo and Cameron, Texas.
