DSI was contracted to provide technical direction and oversight of a new Flash Flood Warning system.

The objective of the project was to develop an Alert Flash Flood Warning System for Hue City, Thua Thien Hue Province, Vietnam. The program includes the procurement, installation and training for the Emergency Management personal responsible for flood warning and mitigation for the province.

The Flood Warning System was designed to monitor the Huong, Ta Trach, Huu Trach and Bo Rivers. Water level and rainfall was monitored at the following hydrometeorological stations:

  • Kim Long (Hương River)
  • Thượng Nhật (Tả Trạch River)
  • Bình Điền (Hữu Trạch River)
  • Phú Ốc (Bồ River)

A flood prediction tool was developed using historical data. The Flood Forecasting model was setup and tested at the base station. The base station for the Flood Warning System was located at Thua Thien Hue Hydrometeorological Station at 130 Phan Chu Trinh Street, Hue City. The following figure shows the locations of the monitoring and base stations.
