ORGANIZING CALIFORNIA'S WATER INFORMATION SYSTEMS

Following our 2014 report, "Achieving a Sustainable California Water Future through Innovations in Science and Technology" CCST has remained engaged with the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) and State policymakers.

Water Information Systems

CCST is undertaking a new related assessment, partnering with DWR to identify possible ways to improve access to water resource data spread across the disparate repositories, archives, and databases of the many California agencies and offices which host useful records.

As a first step, CCST has assembled a workshop design team including CCST Council members, Federal Laboratory Affiliates, CCST Board Members, and DWR staff. A background paper will then provide a launch pad for a series of workshops in early 2017.

The need for greater information on California's water supply and use was a key recommendation of the 2014 report, and the new assessment is an important step in California moving forward to constructively manage its enormous and at times unwieldy collection of water data systems.
