Gauge Alerts Provides Critical Gauge Depth Information

When you sign up for Gauge Alerts, you will have access to our water gauge depth text notification system. The gauges and their information are part of government monitoring systems from such agencies as the USGS and NWS. The Gauge Alert sent via text or SMS can alert you to water depths and provide a link to forecasted depths two weeks out.

Waterbody Depths Impact Lives

Some businesses need up to date river gauge depths and forecasts to plan their operations. Other people live near rivers that are prone to flooding. Having up to date data texted to your phone when you need it will help you be prepared. Flooding impacted 14 million people in 2019 and up to 200 million were at risk according to the Center for Disaster Philanthropy.
