The Rhineland-Palatinate State Agency for the Environment (Landesamt für Umwelt, LfU) and the Luxembourg Water Management Agency (Administration de la gestion de l'eau, AGE) have agreed on a common flood forecast for the border rivers Our, Sauer and Moselle:
AGE and LfU also provide each other with reporting components on the flood situation at the border rivers and adopt those in their flood reports. Within the framework of their flood forecast service, AGE and LfU regularly coordinate and jointly develop the forecast systems further.
The necessary system adaptations on the Rhineland-Palatinate and Luxembourg sides will take place gradually over the next few months. Until the adjustments are completed, technical transitional arrangements apply to ensure trouble-free operation.
Until the necessary system adjustments are completed, the forecasts at the Sauer will be produced by the LfU on a transitional basis.

Our Pétange station, so far our only gauge station in the Maas catchment area, was rebuilt this year through construction works in order to be able to carry out water level and discharge measurements reliably and over many years in all water level areas in the future. A new staircase with a side cut for the level gauge was built, the banks were secured with near-natural armourstones and the river bed was adapted to the existing longitudinal profile of the river. The project has now been completed so that the current water levels can again be displayed on our flood page.
