USGS WaterAlert
The U.S. Geological Survey WaterAlert service sends e-mail or text messages when certain parameters measured by a USGS data-collection station exceed user-definable thresholds. The development and maintenance of the WaterAlert system is supported by USGS and its data-collection partners, including numerous federal, state, and local agencies.

Real-time data from USGS gages are transmitted via satellite or other telemetry to USGS offices at various intervals; in most cases, once every 1 or 4 hours. Emergency transmissions, such as during floods, may be more frequent. Notifications will be based on the data received at these site-dependent intervals

Risk Assessment Map
The ND Water Commission has released an online flood map data viewer, North Dakota Risk Assessment Map Service.

To access the viewer: ndram.swc.nd.gov

It uses "base level engineering" that combines elevation data with advancements in modeling technology to provide information beyond what appears on standard Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) flood insurance rate maps.

This tool, designed by the Water Commission, provides a user-friendly format; users can:

  • Enter a specific address
  • Toggle between the base level engineering data and the standard flood insurance rate map data
  • View water surface elevations and flood depths
  • Dowload data
  • Print customized maps
  • Display current radar and weather warnings.
