The Finnish Environment Institute has a hydrological watershed model system (WSFS). WSFS is used for flood forecasting, realtime monitoring, nutrient load simulation and climate change research. Hydrological water balance maps are created in real time. Forecasts are made on a daily basis for over 500 discharge and water level observation points. Forecasts are used for lake regulation planning, flood damage prevention and as information for the public and authorities.
