District water managers are continually monitoring weather conditions and canal levels in order to maintain our drainage system and proactively respond to weather events.
Each rainfall event has its own characteristics and must be managed as it develops. Radar and other weather reporting technology are utilized to assist District staff responding to rain and storm events.
The District is also investing significant resources to develop and implement a telemetry system and automate the operation of 10 major water control structures. This enhanced technology will transmit real-time data and allow water managers remote access to make immediate water supply and flood control decisions.
