Runoff forecasting system for the Inn river
Developing a comprehensive prognosis tool for runoff levels and flood events of the Tyrolean Inn
Over the last 16 years, alpS developed a comprehensive hybrid and modular flood forecasting system at the Inn river and inflow forecasting system for hydropower plants. The forecasting system runs as development application at alpS and two different operational systems are applied (a) by the Hydrographical Service of the Austrian Federal Province Tyrol for flood forecasting and (b) by the hydropower company TIWAG as inflow forecasting system for their hydropower plants and as a general decision support system. As decision support system, the forecasting system is essential for the sustainable use of water in the Inn River catchment, which is in line with the European Water Framework Directive.
