California Water Data Consortium
The California Water Data Consortium is a nonprofit organization that supports data-informed decision-making in California about water in the face of climate change and other pressures on water resources. We amplify efforts to improve water data infrastructure by creating a neutral organizational space to build trust and facilitate collaboration across sectors.
California Water Data Consortium (Consortium) and Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) are co-hosting an event to enable local agencies and the broader community to learn about a project to scale a water accounting platform supporting SGMA implementation. Please join us on June 23 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. P.T. for a public workshop to share ideas for new features to meet local needs.
State water agencies, the Consortium and EDF announced a new partnership on May 11 to adapt and scale a groundwater accounting platform co-developed by EDF and Rosedale-Rio Bravo Water Storage District in Kern County. This optional tool will help groundwater sustainability agencies manage the transition to sustainable supplies.
In addition to expansion of the water accounting platform, the project team will work closely with water managers, landowners, and community-based organizations to define and encourage adoption of data standards consistent with the Open and Transparent Water Data Act (AB 1755).
