Role of River Stage, Precipitation, and Weather Forecasts in Knowing How Much Stormwater Runoff Will Arrive and When
Harnessing weather forecast and river condition information is part of a project by the Trinity River Authority of Texas for the rehabilitation of more than 17,200 feet of 96-inch sewer pipelines in the City of Irving, TX. Because most of the site is located within the floodplain, close monitoring of weather forecasts and river flow conditions is necessary to avoid interruptions or damage to equipment and materials during construction of the cure-in-place lining installation. An innovative combination of technology integrates observed river stage, weather forecasts, and precipitation estimates to provide a near-real-time forecast horizon from hours to a week ahead.
