Technology to Enhance Flood Management

Using one geographical database instead of several, BRWM will link upgraded Hydrologic, Hydraulic, and Water Quality computer models, where applicable, for use in planning and analysis.

The BRWM program will generate the following data and technical tools:

  • Technical models:  hydrologic, hydraulic, and water quality models tied to a geographic information system for use in identifying regional flood control, drainage, storm water and water quality projects to be included in the Five Year Capital Improvement Plans and Annual Capital Improvement Plan.
  • CIP scoring tool:  the technical committee uses a comprehensive series of scoring criteria to determine the priority of identified regional capital improvement projects.
