UKWater Resources Portal


The UK Water Resources Portal is a prototype web-based system for tracking the hydrological situation in near-real-time. It offers dynamic, interactive situation monitoring, mapping and plotting and a wide range of variables including rainfall, river flow and soil moisture measurements (from COSMOS-UK). Near real-time river flows across England are fed in from the new Environment Agency hydrological data service.

The portal is a ‘demonstrator’ as it is still a work in progress that is being developed and is undergoing user-testing. A fully operational version will be released in 2020.
