State & Local Government

Local, regional, and state agencies manage their continuous water data in AQUARIUS to support the transparent, equitable, and sustainable use of  precious water resources.

State water management agencies are responsible for appropriating each state’s water resources. Accurate, timely water data is critical to administering hundreds of thousands of water rights for agriculture, irrigation, water supply, hydropower, municipal, industrial, recreation, and wildlife propagation. Progressive urban water data management strategies help local communities  and economies thrive.

State and local agencies prefer AQUARIUS for producing timely, accurate water data to enable integrated water management strategies and to streamlining regulatory compliance.
