NOAA's National Water Center:

Construction began February 21, 2012 on NOAA‚s National Water Center on the University of Alabama campus in Tuscaloosa, which will strengthen the nation‚s water forecast capabilities when completed in mid 2013.¬* The necessary expertise and capabilities to address increasingly complex, multi-disciplinary water resource issues reside in more than 20 federal agencies and academia.¬* The growing need and demand for better and timely water forecast information and services requires close partnerships among federal water agencies, because each brings a unique set of complementary tools and information to the table.¬* The National Water Center will be the first-ever U.S center for water forecast operations, research and collaboration across federal agencies and will facilitate the strong collaboration needed to best solve the nation‚s water challenges and serve the American people. This new collaborative water program will enable the National Weather Service, in partnership with other federal agencies, to provide emergency managers and the public with detailed maps that explicitly show forecasted locations and effects of flooding for faster and more effective evacuations.¬* It will also support the development of new forecasts for water supply and availability, thereby helping communities becomes more resilient to floods.¬* The center will deliver a new generation of information and services to mitigate water-related disasters, inform routine decision-making about water, and address competing demands for increasingly limited water availability.
