Digital solutions :

Info Sécheresse (Drought Info), a free service helping you make decisions and raise awareness. Thus, providing real-time access to detailed data at national and regional levels

Because droughts are bound to become more frequent, more severe and longer, and because the challenge of climate change requires the generalization of sustainable practices for the management and use of water resources, SAUR group and Imageau teams have developed the Info Sécheresse platform. Using daily analysis of more than 30,000 drought indicators, Info Sécheresse required more than 6,000 hours of computer development and environmental study.

Water stakeholders and the general public



Open access Government databases

Meteorology : ERA 5 data from ECMWF, European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts.

Hydrology : data from Eaufrance and BanqueHydro for historical data, Hubeau Hydrométrie for daily data, and Onde for low water levels in streams.

Hydrogeology : data from Eaufrance, Hubeau piezometry for historical and daily data.

A service funded by the Saur Group via its subsidiary IMAGEAU

INFO SÉCHERESSE (Drought Info) is a public utility app which is self-financed and made available free of charge by Imageau, a digital water specialist, to enable water stakeholders to manage drought conditions.
INFO SÉCHERESSE is not subsidised.
INFO SÉCHERESSE is based on the EMI app, which required more than 6,000 hours of computer development and environmental study.
INFO SÉCHERESSE is fully in line with the Saur group’s mission: The defence of water. Defending water means guaranteeing that it is of good quality, safe, in sufficient quantity, for everyone, in the short and long term. By supporting the services developed by Imageau, Saur is expanding its range of digital solutions, dedicated to more detailed and shared knowledge of data related to water and the pressures on this resource to ensure that it remains accessible in sufficient quantity in all regions.
