East India: 2019 Overview of CWC Flood Forecasting Sites 

Central Water Commission (CWC) is the only agency doing flood forecasting in India. CWC’s Flood Forecasting (FF) is available on its website[I]. 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 soon. East India includes five states: Bihar, Jharkhand, Chhatisgarh, Odisha and W Bengal.

 

BIHAR In 2018, CWC’s FF website had a total of 58 sites from the state comprised of 35 Level Forecasting and 23 Level Monitoring sites. In 2019, CWC has added 58 Level Monitoring and 3 Inflow Forecasting sites (Gandak, Indrapuri, Kosi) from the state. 6 Level Monitoring sites Dheng Bridge, Runisaidpur, Taibpur, Araria, Sonbarsa, Jainagar have been moved to Level Forecasting list.

Like 2018, CWC has still not provided HFL date for 2 Level Forecasting sites: Ahirwalia, Ekmighat; and for 5 Level Monitoring sites: Triveni, Chanpatia, Birpur, Saulighat, Galgalia. Similarly -Taibpur, Sonbarasa and Jainagar – now Level Forecasting sites – lacks HFL date.

In total, CWC now has 121 Flood Forecasting sites in Bihar including 41 Level Forecasting, 77 Level Monitoring and 3 Inflow Forecasting sites. Name of several districts are repeated under List Based Selection category. It is interesting that HFL has not been crossed at Buxar and Hajipur Level Forecasting sites since 1948 (for past 71 years).

WEST BENGAL (Ganga Basin) In 2018, CWC FF Website had 25 sites from the Ganga basin (GB) of West Bengal State, comprising of 5 Level Forecasting, 15 Level Monitoring and 5 Inflow Monitoring sties. In 2019, CWC has added 33 Level Monitoring sites from the state. Now, on CWC FF site there are 57 sites of Ganga Basin from West Bengal comprising of 5 Level Forecasting, 47 Level Monitoring and 5 Inflow Forecasting sites.

Most of the added sites carry no HFL information including previously added Bedepara and Gopiballavpur sites. DP Ghat Level Monitoring site from Mednipur has been removed. HFL details has been added for Sonapur Level Monitoring sites and FRL and MWL information has been included for Hinglow dam Inflow Forecasting site. Out of 5 Inflow Forecasting sites, 3 lacks MWL detail including Sikatia barrage which does not have even information for FRL. Also, the name of several districts are unnecessarily repeated with small/capital letters under List Based Selection category.

Summary – The CWC FF website has from the 5 states of East India namely Bihar (121), Jharkhand (46), Chhattisgarh (40), Odisha (84), and West Bengal (Ganga Basin) (57), 348 sites. These comprise of 61 Flood Forecasting, 255 Level Monitoring and 32 Inflow Forecasting sites.

CWC FF 2019 East India 2019

This analysis does not include Flood Forecasting sties for Brahmaputra basin in West Bengal state. The information has been compiled under similar analysis for North East states and can be seen here. It is good to see that the CWC has added several new sites mainly Level Monitoring from this region in 2019. In total CWC has added 147 new sites in 5 East Indian states of which 134 are Level Monitoring and 13 are Inflow Forecasting sites. However, CWC seems not particularly bothered to ensure that basic information is included.
