Reclamation Water Information System ScreenshotThe Bureau of Reclamation is releasing an updated version of the Reclamation Water Information System at https://water.usbr.gov. RWIS is designed to meet modern data standards allowing for anyone to view, access and download Reclamation's water data.
RWIS Release 2.0.0 includes the addition of data for the full period of record for four out of five regions, adjustments to the layout and options on the query page, the addition of a visualization demo, and improvements to the behavior of links from the map page.
RWIS allows users to browse available data through an interactive map or search for data through a text-based query. Once the data query is complete, the user can use the data in a method that meets their needs, whether it is downloaded in a standardized format or a graphical display.
The water data site was funded by Reclamation's Science and Technology Program in collaboration with offices from throughout Reclamation. The Science and Technology Program is a competitive, merit-based applied research and development program within Reclamation. It focuses on innovative solutions for water and power challenges for Reclamation water and facility managers and the stakeholders they serve in the Western United States.
