The New California Water Atlas

A Smart Atlas of Water Governance in California

Understand Water in California

Presenting real-time, interactive visualizations of how we use, manage and understand water in California. By visualizing and promoting water data for the state, we are making it possible to understand our cumulative usage of water and how this effects the many farms, individuals, governments, and businesses that rely on water availablity for healthy economies and ecosystems.

As the needs of our state shift with the changing demands placed on us by population growth and climate change, we want to give the gift of broad insight and clear communication to the many professionals and concerned citizens who work so hard to protect and deliver one of our most precious resources.

Water is a shared resource; as such, it is managed by the state on behalf of the people. To achieve our interdependent goals of healthy ecosystems, economies, farms and cities, we strive to bring you up-to-date, clear and accurate information to inform your decisions.
