ALERT2 Creek Monitoring and Flood Warning System Project

In December 2017, the city will begin upgrading and expanding its flood warning system from legacy ALERT technology to ALERT2.  A fully functioning ALERT2 system will provide real-time rainfall and stream level data to the City in support of early flood response as well as other stormwater and water quality projects.  By converting to the ALERT2 communication protocol, high quality data for these watersheds will be consistently made available to the National Weather Service, the California Data Exchange Center, Sacramento County and the community.  The upgrades will include rehabilitation and replacement of outdated equipment to existing rain gauge sites at Livermore Park and the Folsom Water Treatment Plant.  Stream level and rain gauge combo stations will be installed on Hinkle Creek at Cascade Falls Drive, the confluence of Willow and Humbug Creeks at Blue Ravine Drive, and Alder Creek at Prairie City Road.  In total there will be 5 rain gauges and 3 stream gauges.  Funding for this project was supplemented by a California Department of Water Resources Flood Emergency Response Project Grant.  Anyone interested in viewing the Sacramento County Rainfall and Stream Level dta may visit http://www.sacflood.org.  For more information about this project, contact Ryan Chance, rchance@folsom.ca.us at 916-461-6713.
