My Water Level

Due to climate change river flood plains and coastal areas will more frequently face extreme low and high water levels, all around the world. Sometimes events come at unusual times, such as the 2016 floods in the river Rhine that occurred in the summer season. The prediction of extreme water levels is also bound with uncertainty. Early warning of floodplain users such as inhabitants, businesses, farmers, and recreational sector (e.g., camp owners, festival organizers) is crucial to the safety of people and property, or to reduce losses in agricultural sectors. The app "My Water Level" provides a modern-day opportunity to users to set automatic, location-based warnings for self-chosen low and high water levels.

Developed by HKV Consultants

The app "My Water Level" automatically warns anyone who wants to be notified of low or high water levels. The app can be downloaded to smart phones and tablets. The current version of the app contains data about the water levels in the Dutch branches of the river Rhine and Meuse and along the Dutch coast. Users can select locations and set the water levels (s)he wants to receive an automatic notification for. The app sends a push message in case a predefined water level is expected to be exceeded within the next two days.

TRL9. System ready for full scale deployment
Actual system proven in operational environment (competitive manufacturing). The solution is used successfully in a structurally operational environment. The user can and wants to recommend the solution to others. The app has been succesfully tested in-house for (extreme) water levels in the Netherlands. The free and pro versions of My Water Level are available in the app stores.

See more information about this level and the TRL and SRL levels.

The main components of the system have been tested separately, and an initial integration exercise has been conducted.

How does it work?

The app shows the present water level and the hourly forecast for the next two days of one hundred locations along the great rivers and coasts in the Netherlands, using measurements and forecasts from the Dutch authority Rijkswaterstaat. Users can select locations, water levels and uncertainty levels for which they want to receive a notification. In the free version of the app information is provided for five locations. In the pro version (2,99 Euro) access is provided to all one hundred locations. An incompany version of the app is also easily available in the Netherlands or abroad, where the app is based on own (local) water level measurements and forecasts.

Limitations/conditions under which this innovation does not work or is less effective

The app depends on the availability of monitoring / forecasting data.

Added value
My Water Level provides risk information about low and high water levels in a mordern-day fashion. It facilitates risk communication to the general public and can be applied in any region as long as monitoring and/or forecasting data is available. This may concern a wide range of hazards including extreme water levels, water quality indicators, drought and extreme weather events.
