Abstract: due to geological location and special landform, Yangzhong City often suffers from flooding of Yangtze River, typhoons and rainstorms, hence facing severe challenges in flood prevention. Meanwhile, with its rapid economic development and urban expansion, the population density increases within the levee, which imposes higher standards for levee safety. With modern information technology and introduction of the concept of whole-life cycle, a levee safety monitoring and early-warning system can be built to monitor the operation, provide technical support for safety management and operation.
