California Water Data Consortium Pilot Projects

The California Water Data Consortium (Consortium) is advancing three projects to address some of California’s most urgent water needs. Each of our projects, listed below, illustrates the diverse needs of the stakeholders involved and demonstrates the value of cross-sector collaboration. Pilot projects include:

  1. Groundwater Accounting and Data Reporting Pilot Project
  2. LiDAR Pilot Project
  3. Telemetered Data Project
  4. Urban Water Reporting Pilot Project

Project Oversight and Selection

Oversight and review of the projects is provided by the Consortium’s board, steering committee, and working group co-chairs.

Projects generally begin at the Consortium as informal working groups, which can advance without board approval. When ready, a working group can propose a project to the Consortium’s Steering Committee and Board for recommendation and approval. Before adopting a proposed project, the Consortium Board carefully reviews each project concept utilizing a prescribed set of criteria in its selection and approval process.
