Urban catchments are characterized by diverse land cover with large ratio of impervious surfaces on which rainfall-runoff is generated extremely fast. This possess high requirements on spatio-temporal resolution of rainfall data needed for reliable runoff predictions. The contribution summarizes results from three-years experiment evaluating reliability of rainfall-runoff simulations at small urban catchment using rainfall observations from Commercial Microwave Links (CMLs). In addition, system for providing real-time CML-based rainfall product at city scale is presented. Finally, sustainability of the CML-based rainfall observation system is discussed with focus on challenges related to the fast development of communication networks.
