What is Flood Data North Texas?

The Regional Flood Warning Software Platform is a cooperative contract of North Texas SHARE, created with the NCTCOG Environment and Development Department and member communities of the Flood Management Task Force. The goals of the platform is to provide access to flood warning software for communities at a lower cost and to allow communities one common platform to view and interact with flood gauges and provide better resources for planning and response as storms track across the region.

The North Central Texas Region is home to several hydrologic gauging networks used for a wide variety of purposes, including flood warning, water management, and dam safety. However, agencies that have few or no gauges are left without an easy way to understand how rain and flooding are impacting their system. The Regional Flood Warning Software Program provides access to an enterprise-level hydrologic software, called Contrail, to help them understand approaching storms, monitor the impacts on their agency, and provide their constituents with information through the website.

The program collects gauge data from all surrounding gauging networks, including the cities of Fort Worth, Dallas, and Grand Prairie, as well as Tarrant Regional Water District, USGS, and METAR gauges. If available, participating entities can bring in their own gauge data to the system and share that data for the benefit of the region. Within the software, the agency can visualize the data through advanced mapping, dashboards, and graphs. Specific thresholds can be set to be alarmed through SMS or email. StormDataTM Gauge-Adjusted Radar Rainfall will provide rainfall estimation over the entire region, including over a participating entity's area, which can be used if no rain gauges are present. All data is stored for future analysis and post-event reports.


How Communities Can Join
