CBFEWS at Gagan River, Siraha
The Community Based Flood Early Warning System (CBFEWS) has been implemented along the Gagan
River flowing through Nepal and into India. The Gagan River is a trans-boundary river between
Nepal and India, originating in the Siwalik Hills and flowing through the Terai region of Nepal
–the northern extension of the Indo-Gangetic plain—and into India through Bihar.
The telemetry based CBFEWS instrument is designated to be installed at Balahi, Siraha to act as
a source for flood early warning and facilitate complete implementation of CBFEWS.
