Flood Management Activities

Flood Forecasting

Flood Forecasting and Warning Centre (FFWC) of Bangladesh Water Development Board simulates mathematical models to generate the flood forecast from May to September period covering major flood prone areas of the country. In the Northeast region, they monitor real time water level (17 no.) and rainfall (13 no.) and produce flood forecast at 15 stations with lead time of 72 hours. The present FFWC flood forecast system is not sufficient for pre-monsoon flash flood forecast. Institute of Water Modelling has conducted several research study to develop a flash flood forecast system in the region. The system will be operated in experimental basis in the coming pre-monsoon season.

Water Management Projects

There are all together 118 water management projects: Flood Control and Drainage projects 60 no., Flood control Drainage and Irrigation projects 46 no., Flood Control projects 10 no., Drainage project 1 no. and Irrigation projects 1 no. in the NE region. Flood Control projects include both full flood control projects and partial flood control projects. Most of these projects are administered by BWDB. Out of these 118 water management projects, 37 nos. Haor projects are now under rehabilitation program of BWDB.
