Description The Digital Delta Initiative is a Private-Public Partnership in the Netherlands that uses big data for flood management. The project has several elements: 1) High resolution urban flood warning system: By gathering detailed weather information and real-time data from sensors in the water system, authorities will be able to predict flooding of tunnels well ahead of time and take action to head it off. 2) Water supply balancing: Sharing of real time data will improve prediction models, enabling water officials to discharge water from storage areas in anticipation of flooding. They’ll also be able to retain water to address looming shortages that might result in salt water intrusion damaging agriculture and drinking water production. 3) Status-based-maintenance: Through the use of inexpensive sensors in dykes, sluices, pipes, tunnels and roadways, authorities will be able to spot potential vulnerabilities ahead of time and schedule preventive maintenance. They’ll be able to focus on impending problems and not expend resources on repairs that aren’t required.
