Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services (CMSWS) authored this guidebook under a partnership with DHS S&T. The guidebook details the CMSWS experience deploying and testing the prototypes of the low-cost flood sensors (LCS) at locations in Mecklenburg County. It summarizes the steps taken in Mecklenburg County, the most populated county in North Carolina, to install, operate and maintain LCS. It is intended to serve as a reference for communities nationwide attempting to mitigate hazards associated with flooding through the installation and monitoring of real-time water levels in areas at risk of flooding.
