Using multidisciplinary teams of experts in climate, water, law, and economics, the Western Water Assessment provides information about natural climate variability and human-caused climate change. This information – usually in the form of climate forecasts and regional vulnerability assessments -- is designed to assist water-resource decision makers.
The information contained in the following web pages is of a technical nature. It is intended for use by those in the scientific and water resources communities interested in natural flow and salt computations in the Colorado River Basin. These data are furnished by the Bureau of Reclamation for use as hydrologic inputs to the Colorado River Simulation (CRSS) long-term planning and operations model.
General and Current Hydrology 1. The U.S. Geological Survey’s National Water Information System (NWIS) is a network of websites that contains a wealth of hydrologic data and links to tools and resources. It has a very helpful data discovery site. 2. NWIS Web Services Snapshot is an ArcGIS add-in tool developed by the U.S. Geological Survey. It allows users to query the NWIS database and download subsets of the data into geodatabases. 3. The Western Water Assessment’s Intermountain West Climate Dashboard displays climate data graphics that are updated on a daily basis. These graphics include data for drought monitoring, current and forecasted streamflow and reservoir storage. 4. The U.S. Bureau...

Water rights in the State of Kansas are complex and dynamic entities that permit their owners the privilege of appropriating water for beneficial use. The amount of information collected on water rights is extensive and increases each year. The Kansas Department of Agriculture, Division of Water Resources (KDA-DWR), currently maintains an Oracle-based RDBMS called the Water Rights Information System (WRIS). The WRIS contains over 70 relational tables that store data on points of diversion (e.g. ground-water wells and surface water intakes), place of use, authorized quantity and rate allocations, historic reported water usage, and a host of other parameters. The ability to extract out information from the WRIS data...
