The Iowa Flood Center is asking for donations in order to add more stream-stage sensors around Iowa.

These sensors collect real time data about stream height, which is then displayed on the Iowa Flood Information System. This data helps with the monitoring of flood potential in different watersheds.

The Iowa Flood Center has already placed 129 of these sensors around the state. With the help of the donations, they hope to add 100 more.
