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.
Anbei die beiden Lageberichte für die Sauer vom Samstag, den 14. Januar 2023 und Sonntag, den 15. Januar 2023 und die Hochwasserinformation für die Mosel vom Montag, den 16. Januar 2023.
The "Meine Pegel" app with information on water levels and floods is now also available for Luxembourg.
The app "Meine Pegel" is designed to help people find out about water levels and floods in an even simpler and more targeted way.
Users have the option to individually set a specific water level for the gauges available in the app from which they want to be informed.
In addition to the current water levels, the app also displays the current flood reports from the website inondations.lu. Here, too, it is possible to notify the user as soon as the reports are made available at the official level.
The app, which has already been available in Germany for a few years, includes gauges in the Netherlands and Switzerland in addition to gauges in Luxembourg and Germany. It is now available in Luxembourg for Google Android and for Apple iOS in five languages.
From now on, you can subscribe to the new RSS feed of the inondations.lu site (in four languages) and thus be informed about the current flood situation and current warnings. In addition, it is still possible to subscribe by Login to receive notifications about the current flood situation and current warnings by e-mail. You can now choose between the catchment areas of Sûre or Moselle or receive information for both areas as standard.
The current flood situation with the official flood thresholds and the affected catchment areas (Sûre, Alzette or Moselle) are now displayed under warnings. The map still shows the current return period of the measured water levels.
