Texas Water Data for Emergency Management

Emergency managers often have urgent needs for situational awareness, impact assessment, and management of recovery or mitigation activities.Collecting and delivering information where and when it is needed requires advanced planning. The USGS Texas Water Science Center (TXWSC) can monitor water conditions anywhere but we must have the equipment in place before the event. The TXWSC can provide...

Bandera Flood Early Warning Tool

Risk of future flooding events in the Bandera County area highlights a critical need for a flood warning system. As part of the flood warning system, a tool set is needed to enhance the communication of flood risk and provide emergency managers additional information necessary to better mitigate the impacts of flooding. The USGS Texas Water Science Center is helping build this tool set through...
