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