Water Information and Accounting Systems

UC Water has several ongoing research programs that bring together the diverse expertises of the University of California system. 

We have addressed water information as one of the "Three I's" critical to water security. When coupled with empowered institutions and sustainable infrastructure, the state's water resource management will be improved with in-depth, near-real-time water accounting. 

For example, one exciting program that integrates headwaters, reservoirs and groundwater (three major water stores of California) is our proof-of-concept of Whole Watershed Accounting in the American-Cosumnes River Basin.
