StormSensor’s SURFR® (Stormwater Urban Flood Risk) Index highlights not only where flooding is likely to occur, but why that flooding is most likely to impact your community or facility. StormSensor® utilizes a series of physical hazards and socioeconomic risk factors to calculate relative risk on a county, census tract, or parcel basis. Understanding why your community floods empowers you to take action in a way that has the greatest positive impact on your citizens.
To manage flooding and backups, you need to know both where and why flooding happens.
When it starts raining, you can watch how fast a storm is creating flood and surcharge conditions. You can also receive event-specific texts and emails, which means you can respond quickly.
Analyses of data captured from dense networks of monitoring points (1) inform insights related to system performance and (2) target response actions.
StormSensor® uses data captured over a series of storm events to train predictive algorithms. These algorithms provide advance notice of flood risk across your system given the forecasted duration and intensity of upcoming storm events.
You can apply our automated trend analyses to design capital improvements that solve the real source of your flooding problem.
