System alerts bay communities of coming floods

John Callahan, Kevin Brinson and Dan Leathers test a station in the Coastal Flood Monitoring System.

Launched in 2011, the Coastal Flood Monitoring System (CFMS) supports planning and emergency management for Delaware Bay communities before and during coastal storm or high tide events.

The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control and the Delaware EPSCoR program funded the project.
