Overview of CWC Flood Forecasting Sites: East India 

Central Water Commission is the only agency doing flood forecasting in India. As per CWC’s Flood Forecasting website[I] the Data Flow Map has information about 226 Flood Forecast Sites in the country comprising of 166 Level Forecast Sites and 60 Inflow Forecast Sites. It also monitors 700 Flood sites, information made available through List Based Exploration and Hydrograph View, but no flood forecasting is done for these sites.

In order to better understand the CWC’s flood monitoring and forecasting work, in this article we have given an overview of CWC’s flood forecasting and monitoring sites in East India. It includes state wise list of CWC’s Level Forecast, Inflow Forecast and level monitoring sites in East India. Similar report has been published for North India[II] and North East India[III] and we hope to publish reports covering other regions of India too. 

BIHAR There are 35 Level Forecasting Sites and 23 Level Monitoring sites in Bihar. Bihar has no Inflow Measuring site. CWC has not provided HFL date for two Level Forecasting sites: Ahirwalia, Ekmighat; and for eight level monitoring sites: Triveni, Chanpatia, Birpur, Taibpur, Sonbarsa, Saulighat, Galgalia, Jainagar.

For GALUDIH BARRAGE, Chandil Dam, and GETASLUT RESERVOIR; MWL information is not provided. SUNDAR DAM and BHAIRWA DAM inflow monitoring sites which found mention in the website upto last week, seemingly has been removed. Both sites were inactive.  Most of the hydrograph sites for Inflow Monitoring has no detail of information about inflow and outflow.
