Many organizations are taking steps to improve their flood resilience planning through monitoring to increase the speed and accuracy of flood response and community protection. But flood-related data can be complex and extremely time sensitive, given the urgent nature of heavy rain and flood events.

Join OTT HydroMet experts Derek Slocum, Business Development Manager for Urban Flood Warning, and Dan Penczak, Hydro Territory Manager, to learn how you can leverage data and hardware opportunities to improve your flood monitoring and early warning systems. Be better prepared for any flood event with consolidated data from sensors and systems to make more informed decisions—faster.
