Managing Water for Good
Flash Flood Warning
One consequence of wildland fire is the increased risk of severe flash flooding from the burn area, often with very little rain. OneRain fully implements remote monitoring networks in short order. Contrail® software collects data in real time via cell, radio, and/or satellite so public safety officials understand their risk during rainstorms, and the NWS gets the data they need to forecast life-threatening flash floods and debris flows.
In 2003 OneRain developed StormLink® Satellite to enable low-power monitoring of remote, hazardous dams. Data from a variety of site-specific sensors are transmitted to Contrail® via satellite in real time. Today, with StormLink expanded to cell, wifi, IoT, and others, Contrail for Dam Safety and Contrail for Gate Operations are widely used to reduce risk and optimize all dam operations including hydroelectric.
Better Irrigation and Aquifers
OneRain provides systems to optimize irrigation and help water providers better manage their scarce surface water. Working with existing and new field monitoring networks, Contrail® enables organizations to track storms, monitor riverine inflows, and capture storm water at system diversion points.
