One of the principle non-structural methodologies for mitigating flood damages is through an effective flood warning system. Throughout much of the country, extensive development in, adjacent to, and upstream of numerous flood plains has greatly increased the potential for property damage and loss of life. As property values and population pressures have increased, the use of many structural techniques for flood control have become limited by excessive costs. As a consequence there is now a growing interest in non-structura1 flood protection methods.
