This Interactive Dashboard provides access to visualizations for a variety of geographic information system datasets. By visualizing this data, both researchers and the public may analyze and collaborate on a variety water management issues (and their solutions), which affect the Western United States.

  • Addressing Drought Across the West

    The Addressing Drought Portal is an interactive platform that highlights Reclamation’s efforts and investments to mitigate drought impacts, increase drought resiliency, reduce reliance on declining water sources, and increase the efficiency of water deliveries.

    The portal is user friendly and provides easy-to-understand features, explanations and current information on cutting-edge science, drought actions, current conditions, and climate change visualizations that will help the user understand the complex drought conditions in the West.

  • WaterSMART Data Visualization Tool

    The American West faces serious water challenges. Widespread drought, increasing populations, aging infrastructure, and environmental requirements, which collectively, strain existing water and hydropower resources.

    Adequate and safe water supplies are fundamental to the health, economy, and security of the country. Through WaterSMART (Sustain and Manage America’s Resources for Tomorrow), Reclamation continues to work cooperatively with states, tribes, and local entities as they plan for and implement actions to increase water supply through investments to modernize existing infrastructure and attention to local water conflicts.

  • Climate Change and Water Visualization

    Reclamation published an updated SECURE Water Act Report to Congress. The report highlights findings from basin-specific collaborative planning studies that provide a West-wide perspective on anticipated impacts to water resources due to climate change and corresponding adaptation strategies.

  • Irrigation Demand Projections Visualization

    Reclamation collaborated with the Desert Research Institute and the University of Idaho in the development of a state-of-the-science computerized evapotranspiration (ET) model (ET Demands) that is being used to estimate historical and future agricultural irrigation water demands for the Western United States.

    Reclamation published an Irrigation Demand and Reservoir Evaporation Projections report as a Baseline Water Assessment activity under the WaterSMART Basin Study Program in 2015. The technical memorandum report provides an analysis of future changes in irrigation water demand across Reclamation’s major river basins (Colorado, Columbia, Klamath, Missouri, Rio Grande, Sacramento/San Joaquin and Truckee/Carson). The technical assessment report provides an analysis of future changes in irrigation water demand across Reclamation’s major river basins (Colorado, Columbia, Klamath, Missouri, Rio Grande, Sacramento/San Joaquin and Truckee/Carson).

  • Climate-Adjusted Streamflow Projections Visualization

    Streamflow projections are being made available to provide immediate access for the convenience of interested persons. Data files for monthly and daily projected streamflows can be downloaded from the web application Climate-Adjusted Streamflow Projections for Western US.

    The U.S. Department of Interior's Bureau of Reclamation, the University of Washington's Climate Impacts Group (CIG), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Weather Service (NWS) Colorado Basin River Forecast Center, (ie, Archive Collaborators) believe the information to be correct representations of potential high-resolution climate/hydrologic variations and changes subject to the limitations of the CMIP3 global climate simulations, and the downscaling methods and their limitations, as described at the Bias Corrected and Downscaled Climate and Hydrology Projections website.

  • 2021 SECURE Report Web Portal

    Every five years, Reclamation submits a report to Congress under the SECURE Water Act analyzing projected risks to water supplies in the West using the best available science and highlighting collaborative efforts to mitigate those risks. The Water Reliability in the West – 2021 SECURE Water Act Report (2021 Report) provides a West-wide assessment of changes to water supplies, uses, and demands and highlights progress and describes actions taken to increase water supply reliability since the 2016 Report. The 2021 Report summarizes the more detailed information in the West-Wide Climate and Hydrology Assessment (2021 Assessment) and the SECURE Water Act Basin Reports and factsheets in conjunction with the SECURE Report.

  • Collaborative Conservation and Adaptation Strategy Toolbox (CCAST)

    Complex challenges in natural resource management require collaboration and coordination across landscapes and jurisdictions. For example, forecasts indicate that the Colorado River Basin, as well as other basins, will continue to experience drought conditions in the future, and that resource managers will need to continually adapt to ensure a sustainable water supply. CCAST is a multi-organizational partnership directed by the Bureau of Reclamation, US Fish and Wildlife Service Science Applications Program, and the Drought Learning Network to enhance collaborative efforts at landscape and watershed scales. The CCAST Team cooperates with over 150 individuals from dozens of organizations to support Communities of Practices on drought adaptation, non-native aquatic species, grassland restoration, and pollinator conservation. The Communities of Practice provide a central place to deliver scientific information, learn from peers, synthesize information and increase its accessibility, publish case studies focused on lessons learned and adaptive management, and provide decision-support tools while increasing communication between resource managers and researchers.

  • Science and Technology Data Visualization

    The Science and Technology Program (S&T) is a Reclamation-wide competitive, merit-based applied research and development program. The program focuses on innovative solutions for water and power challenges in the Western United States for Reclamation water and facility managers and the stakeholders they serve. The program has contributed many of the tools and capabilities Reclamation and western water managers use today.

    This application provides a geo-reference for the location of funded projects. While there are many unique project locations, you will also find that at some locations there have been many different projects conducted at this location.
