What are the benefits of ISWMM?
The ISWMM system is connected to 28 rain/stream gauges across the city that report real time information. The information is then used to create real time ponding maps that include street ponding depths. Among its many benefits are:
Public web-based access to real-time ponding information across the city
Ability to send notifications about intensifying street ponding, flooding, and potential street closures
Assist in the planning of evacuation routes if needed
Helps coordinate Hazard Mitigation Plans with area agencies and Levee Improvement Districts
Helps evaluate drainage infrastructure to better target potential improvements
