WAPDA is actively involved in the flood forecasting process as it provides water levels of major reservoirs (Tarbela, Chashma & Mangla), river flows and rainfall data collected through Flood Telemetric System/Gauged sites in the catchment areas of major rivers. The system is supplemented by Meteor-burst communication system. WAPDA supports another hydrometric data measurement and transmission system through its Surface Water Hydrology Project.
WAPDA’s Flood Telemetric Network is directly linked with FFD, Lahore. WAPDA provides hydrometric flood data and water levels, inflows/ outflows of Tarbela, Chashma and Mangla reservoirs to FFD, Lahore, FFC and other concerned organizations. Coordination between FFD Lahore and WAPDA has considerably improved after the 1992-flood disaster. Regular meetings in the office of General Manager (Planning & Design) are held during flood season and necessary instructions are issued to Tarbela and Mangla Dam Flood Management Committees.
