Overland Park's 'Stormwatch' network helps Johnson County plan for, react to flooding

A network of sensors along creeks and roads in Johnson County help municipal leaders plan for and react to flooding during storm events.

Overland Park installed the first sensor in 1985 after a powerful flood in 1984.

Over the past 30 years, the "Stormwatch" program has grown to 108 sensors throughout Johnson County.

Managers with the county's stormwater management program said they're looking at the possibility of adding a new monitor along Indian Creek at Switzer Road.
