Design Storm Alert System
The Design Storm Alert System (DSAS) is a web-based monitoring system tracking precipitation accumulation across Missouri. DSAS is updated daily and reports which counties have met or exceeded various design storm criteria. A design storm is the amount of rain for which a structure was designed.
The current DSAS is focused on managing open/uncovered storages used for manure and domestic wastewater.
