Water Levels and Flooding News for February 2018

Are flooding risks getting worse? According to this New York Times article that’s an affirmative yes, water levels are rising and chemical sites are in the path.

What does this mean for toxic spills like those that happened in Texas during Hurricane Harvey and released lye from chemicals plants? Floods also cause emergency disasters like benzene escaping from Ohio refineries and phosphoric acid leaking from Florida fertilizer plants.

More and more scientific reports claim that flooding will worsen in the USA as a result of global climate change, rising sea levels, as well as increased hurricanes and coastal storms.

This story describes the results and actions to take based on this knowledge in areas around New Orleans, Louisiana.

And on the other side of the country, there are flood advisories in effect for Oahu, Hawai’i. The National Weather Service has issued flash flood warnings.

The increasing risk of flooding could also be due to decades of urban development, like office parks, roads, malls and neighborhoods growing even farther apart. This PBS story discusses how decisions by developers, individuals, local, state, and federal government have made for more flood risks over the decades in the areas around Houston, Texas.

What Can You and We Do About Growing Flood Risks and Rising Water Levels?

Smart Cities in the USA, like those in Virginia on the East Coast, continue to deploy more flood warning systems.

These IoT system devices use ultrasonic and radar sensors to measure real-time water levels and upload readings to Tools.Valarm.net.

Flood monitoring systems are rapidly deployable. They are quite flexible since IoT water level sensor information can be uploaded to the cloud via mobile cell network, ethernet, WiFi or other internet connectivity options.

The water level monitoring systems are powered by the means that makes the most sense for the scenario, whether that’s standard 110V mains power or solar panel power.

Water Monitoring and Industrial IoT Sensors for Fluids Telemetry – July 2017 News

Tools.Valarm.net Remote Monitoring Systems Water Air Quality Industrial IoT Monitor Sensors 63 How far will you go for water? To the moon and back? There might be more water on the moon than we thought according to NPR and Scientific American.

During droughts, you’ve got folks all over the U.S. using quite a lot of water, like more than a gallon per minute by these Tampa Bay water hogs. While in Florida, water main breaks and repair activities have caused road closures. And citizens there are advised to boil all water before drinking or cooking. Similarly, Utah residents have been asked to limit water use after a major water line break.

You’re seeing droughts, water rationing, and weird water issues all over the world. In Rome, Italy, the climate, environment, and cities are drier than they’ve been for decades. Due to the heatwave, water sources could be turned off for 8 hours a day.

You ever wondered or been curious about what gets sent down the water drain? Lots of rubber bouncy balls, a rope monster, and even a snapping turtle have been found in wastewater treatment facilities in the Chicago area.

For example, there are the 5 state officials charged with involuntary manslaughter for the Flint public health crisis that led to an outbreak of disease, suffering children, and lead poisoning.

But according to this story, global companies and corporations like Nestle don’t pay anything for water, and they’re continuing to increase their water usage. This increase in pumping can lead to negative effects on local wetlands, aquatic habitats, and stream flow.

Also in the Midwest U.S., Minnesota is having more water quality problems. This article calls for something dramatic to happen for water management reform and improvement of water resources.

Since the federal EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) isn’t providing as much money to local and state governments for safeguarding and protecting ecosystems like water and air, other organizations need to help out with mandates and responsibility for monitoring our environment.
