Comply26 scans each project's nearest weather station daily based on the GPS coordinates for each active project to determine if a precipitation event has occurred in the area. The system will send various notifications if a triggering event has occurred based on the minimum chance of precipitation (%) and precipitation amount (inches) provided for each project.
For each project assigned to a Reviewer or Inspector, they may receive one of the following notifications:
Weekly Forecast: Generated at the beginning of each work week, this notice provides a seven – day forecast outlining the chance of precipitation and possible precipitation amount at each site. This is a future looking, informational notice.
Forecasted Precipitation Events: Lists the projects assigned to the Inspector which meet the minimum alert notifications: precipitation amount or chance of precipitation. This is a future looking, informational notice.
Precipitation Event Notice: Lists any projects which the nearest weather station data meets or exceeds the alert parameters set for each project. For example, if the minimum precipitation amount for Project A is 0.15 inches, the recipients will be alerted when the nearest proxy station receives ≥ 0.15 inches precipitation.
UPDATE MONITORING PARAMETERS
To modify the minimum weather alert parameters you must change the minimums for the project in question:
Go to the Project's Profile.
Select the 'Project Details' tab.
Select ‘Edit’ at the bottom of the page.
Update the Precipitation Alert Minimum (%) and/or the Precipitation Event Minimum (Inches).
NOTE: Lower values will result in more frequent notifications and alerts. Higher values will result in fewer alerts.
