EARLY WARNING FLOOD FORECASTING SYSTEMS

EkoSource specialises in developing online decision support systems which assist with the operation planning and management of water infrastructure. These services have been shown to reduce losses and improve delivery on systems where they have been implemented. These services include:

  • Near real-time reservoir release management systems for low flow optimisation

  • Near real-time release optimisation, flow management and compliance auditing

  • Water ordering, release optimisation and water use auditing

  • Near real time flood forecasting and management services

  • Water resources information management systems

  • Integrated Decisions Support Systems

  • Alliance for Water Stewardship Standard

Development of Short-term Flood Forecasting System for Eastern Nile technical regional office.

Development of a Flood forecasting system   for four sub-basins of the Eastern Nile basin. The FFS was developed on the   MIKE Operation platform to predict the flows at various locations of the four   sub-basins. The system will help ENTRO with early identification of possible   floods and taking appropriate measure to prevent the loss of lives.

Development of a flood disaster mitigation plan and Early Warning Flood Forecasting System for Umgungundlovu District Municipality

This project focussed on assisting Umgeni   Water in setting up a flood disaster mitigation plan and early warning system   for the Umgungundlovu District Municipality. The objective of the project was   to work with Umgeni in capacity building its staff to develop hydrological   and hydrodynamic models. The project focussed on setting up a set of models   to determine the hydrological hazard threat, then combined this with GIS   collected vulnerability estimates to determine areas of highest risk. This   was then combined with the Early Warning Flood Forecasting System which   integrated the models into an operational framework.

Lower Inkomati Flood Risk Management and development of Early Warning system

This was a full flood risk assessment and development of a pilot system for the flood early warning on the lower part of the system. An integrated team was setup to investigate the options related to specific infrastructure interventions and economic impacts associated with these interventions. This study had a good success with findings being presented at Stockholm water week.

Limpopo Water Monitoring

Project initiated to set up a pilot proof   of concept early warning flood management system on the Limpopo catchment.   The system was setup using existing datasets and real time information. The   system ran successfully using only the hydraulics to monitor high flows down   the Limpopo system.
