be better informed and prepared (11.12.2017)
As the flood season begins and following the significant rainfall of recent days, the Administration de la gestion de l’eau (Luxembourg's water management service) invites you to visit its completely overhauled flood warning website, www.inondations.lu, which went live in October 2017.
The aim of the website is to provide a continuous update on what the water levels of Luxembourg's rivers are, as well as flood forecasts and additional information during the flood warning phase.
Initially launched in 2008, the www.inondations.lu website was developed in collaboration with the flood warning service of the German region of Rhineland-Palatinate. However, the technical structure of the website meant it was no longer possible to meet current flexibility requirements concerning updates and data management, resulting in the creation of a brand-new website.
The new www.inondations.lu website boasts a modern design, is easy-to-use and offers more information to users and those interested in hydrometry, including details regarding flow statistics and how the Service hydrométrie (hydrometry division) operates.
The new website also allows users to subscribe to receive flood alerts during flood warning phases, and includes a mobile version so that the site can be accessed from a smartphone or tablet.
