  Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service (AHPS)

A helpful link for concerned residents to be more informed with real-time data and forecasts regarding flooding on the St. Croix River.

AHPS forecast products are a basis for operation and management of flood-control structures.  Emergency management officials at local and state levels use these forecasts to fight floods, evacuate residents, and to take other measures to mitigate the impact of flooding.  As the population grows, people increasingly choose to live near water, creating an increased need for the NWS to educate the public about flood hazards and to improve flood forecasts.  These products can be used by a wide range of people, such as barge operators, power companies, recreational users, farmers, households, businesses, and environmentalists.
