What is FMIS

Flood Management Information System is a World Bank sponsored project under Water Resources Department, Govt. of Bihar. The comprehensive FMIS would be developed in four stages. In the first stage the focus area is the most flood prone area in North Bihar, from Burhi Gandak river in the west to Kosi river in the east, including the districts East Champaran, Muzaffarpur, Begusarai, Samastipur, Dharbanga, Sitamarhi, Sheohar, Madhubani, Supaul, Saharsa, and Khagaria covering about 26,000 sq. km. in area.

In FMIS Phase II entire North Bihar together with Patna, Bhagalpur and Munger district have been targeted to be developed.

FMIS development would cover substantially enhanced functions and products, supported by improved hydrologic observations and telemetry, more reliable and longer term rainfall forecasts, enhanced flood forecast and inundation prediction with better models, airborne Synthetic Aperture Radar (ASAR) surveys for real-time inundation information during floods, close-contour surveys  of the flood plain using LIDAR Technology, mapping floodplain geomorphology including micro-relief to understand and improve drainage, improved communication links and information flow, risk and vulnerability analysis, institutional and community outreach mechanisms, and real-time flood data dissemination. The fully upgraded FMIS would support preparation of master plan for flood control and drainage, irrigation improvement, and overall water sector development in Bihar State.
