AQUARIUS Hydrology & Environmental Analytics Case Study

South Dakota DENR’s Use of AQUARIUS to Develop Legally Defensible Water Level Models

“Using the Empirical Model, we were able to calculate how often the lake’s water level would have actually increased over the last 30 years, under the proposed management plan. It really helped the board decide that it was better not to allow them to bring water in. This was my first attempt at using the Empirical Modeler, and the fact that in two days I could come up with a working model that recreates 30 years of data – it speaks very well of the software’s ease of use.”

Sean Kruger, South Dakota DENR

I never have to prune data or make decisions about which part of the data I should manipulate. AQUARIUS has empowered me to do so much more data exploration than I could have undertaken if I was stuck using Excel. I’m not aware of any other software on the market that does what AQUARIUS does.”

AQUARIUS Surface Water Monitoring Case Study

Wyoming State Engineer’s Offices’ State-Wide Implementation of AQUARIUS Rating Curves

“We have improved the accuracy of our record, which is critical. We are creating a reproducible, archiveable, legally defensible records to USGS standards, which is the national standard for us. The Ratings Package stands out. It’s a tool that we’ve wanted forever, and we’ve finally found something that really does what we had in mind. It’s flexible – you just grab a line and adjust which curve you’re using, and how that curve is related to the measurements or the actual skeletal points. That wasn’t possible before.”

Loren Smith, Wyoming State Engineer’s Office

That provides credibility for the small fish in the pond.”
