USBR Launches Pilot Water Information System Website

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) has launched a pilot program website to enable users to view, access, and download USBR data. With the Reclamation Water Information System (RWIS) pilot you can:

  • Locate Reclamation sites and access current and historical water data by browsing an interactive map.
  • Search for water data by location or data type with the query tool.
  • Get machine readable water datasets to use as input for your models and analyses via manual downloads or automated data exchange via web service. Use the web service/API URL to feed data to your own applications.
