Irish Flood Warning system

Irish Flood Warning System

Irish Flood Warning System

The first Irish live online Flood Warning System; in the future this site will be used by individuals and businesses throughout Ireland to view current river levels and rainfall.

University College Cork Flood Studies Group 

We are currently developing a Flood Warning System for the Munster Blackwater, this is a research project and as you can see from the Flood Warning Page a Live website has been designed so that water levels are updated approximately every two hours.

When a flood peaks in Dromcummer we can expect that peak to reach Mallow approximately five hours later.

When a flood peaks in Duarrigle we can expect that peak to reach Mallow approximately eleven hours later.

River Height Table  

Stage 1 (River heights exceed 2.3 m at Duarrigle, 2.1 m at Dromcummer and 2.5 m at Mallow ) - likely flooding to Longsfields Bridge and environs.
Stage 2 (River heights exceed 2.6 m at Duarrigle, 2.5 m at Dromcummer and 2.6 m at Mallow) - likely flooding to the Park Rd, Mallow and Environs.
Stage 3 (River heights exceed 3 m at Duarrigle, 2.6 m at Dromcummer and 3 m at Mallow) - the likelihood of serious flooding in Mallow.

+ positive rate of rise means the river is rising
- negative rate of rise means that the river is falling

Below can be seen the graphs of the river heights at the two sites on the River Blackwater, the first two graphs representing the river heights over the last 24 hours, the next two represent the river heights over the past seven days scroll down to see the river heights over the last three months, six months and year respectively.
Stage 1 - likely flooding to Longsfields Bridge and environs.
Stage 2 - likely flooding to the Park Rd, Mallow and Environs.
Stage 3 - the likelihood of serious flooding in Mallow.
