As a stormwater monitoring professional, you know a best practice is to design your SWPPP for the worst case rainfall. But what is the best way find that out? A recent IECA-sponsored webinar highlighted the use of the NOAA Atlas 14 as a way to know maximum rainfall potential.
WaterWatch PRO shows you the maximum rainfall for locations being monitored. This way, you'l know the most that has fallen. From the Precip History for your location, you'll see View Historic Maximums. Click on that to display the most that has fallen in a 1 and 24-hour period over various year frequencies. Most stormwater monitoring professionals and civic engineers need to know when rainfall exceeds their SWPPP designs.
When actual rainfall detected by WaterWatch PRO exceeds any of the NOAA Atlas 14 values for your location, the amounts in the Precip History turn red. This helps stormwater monitoring professionals know when there's been too much rain.
