Beginning in 2011, the Iowa Flood Center (IFC) has attended the Iowa State Fair to showcase its resources and research to Iowans, as well as to listen to flooding issues and challenges that individuals and communities face. Discussions with fair-goers have led to new locations for IFC stream-stage sensors and the incorporation of enhanced features on the Iowa Flood Information System (IFIS).
