The system of rain and Creek flow monitors and the existing Creek Monitor website have enhanced the ability of the public and emergency responders to plan for and respond to flooding, yet this system is deficient in several key areas. The SFCJPA and its project partners are making a concerted effort to: 1) collect weather, rainfall and stream flow information using additional data points and integrate that data into a single source of information; 2) interpret this collected information to anticipate when and where the creek may overtop and where water is likely to go; and 3) create online and other communications tools that describe the anticipated threat so that responders and the public can take appropriate action before a flood strikes.
The SFCJPA seeks proposals from a Consultant to recommend appropriate equipment and transmission type given the needs and characteristics of the area, and to create a customized system that harmonizes data collection technologies and integrates it into a single source of information. Interested consultants should respond to the Request for Proposals for our Flood Early Warning System project.
Public support is critical to the success of our work. Let us know how we are doing by mail or e-mail to the addresses on our contact page, or by joining us at an upcoming Board meeting or other public meeting.
The JPA is planning and designing several projects that take a comprehensive approach to providing flood protection, ecosystem restoration, and recreational enhancement.
The SFCJPA Board meets frequently throughout the year, and agency staff host and participate in discussions with community groups, city councils, and others. Please join us at a meeting listed below:
