An integrated llood management system (IFMS) is being developed incorporating the recent advances in computational hydraulics, computer graphics and data handling. It has live major components: engineering calculations, graphics, database, 'goodness-of-fit' statistical methods and a cost optimization component. The engineering calculation programs include urban and rural drainage, backwater computations, nood rouling, sediment transport and quality control. The IFMS identifies the trend in the nineties of integration of presently separated activities such as planning, implementation, operation and maintenance, as well as management support.
