Abstract: Communities built along both large and small rivers can be threatened by flooding and the associated potential for loss of life and personal property. Whether resulting from heavy rains, snowmelt, ice jams, or combinations of these, flooding can occur unpredictably and without warning. An advanced early flood warning system could prevent fatalities and loss of personal property. The Engineering Resources Branch of the Engineer Research and Development Center’s Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) has long been involved in the development of environmental monitoring systems for remote sites. Several systems have been modified for use in early flood warning. This report describes a simple early flood warning system along with an example of its use on the Israel River in Lancaster, New Hampshire.
