Water Resource Management

Centralized water data management and powerful analytics deliver the insight required to optimize multiple watershed objectives.

Water resource and watershed management is the activity of planning, developing, distributing, and managing the optimum use of water resources, while minimizing the impact of water use on the natural environment. Strategic watershed management requires accurate knowledge of the quality and supply available to meet the competing demands. Ideally, water resources are allocated equitably to satisfy all uses and demand for drinking, sanitation, manufacturing, leisure, and agriculture. This is particularly difficult with limited water resources.

AQUARIUS enables multi-objective watershed management by delivering accurate, timely, and reliable water data as the basis for evidence-based decision making.
