Data for COVID: Wastewater Surveillance

As we learn more about the potential of wastewater surveillance for early warning of COVID, many states are grappling with how to transform their current water data infrastructure to ensure effective and efficient data management around wastewater surveillance. In this webinar, participants will hear about the efforts of partners from California, New York, and Utah, their challenges, lessons learned, and successes. This is the first in what we hope to be a series of conversations about wastewater surveillance data management.

That’s So Meta! Technical Workshop

The objectives of this workshop are to provide participants increased understanding of water-related metadata and application of water metadata tools.

This workshop is a partnership among the Internet of Water (IoW), Water Data Exchange (WaDE) of the Western Water States Council, and the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Sciences, Inc. (CUAHSI).

Water Budgeting

Is your state or region wrestling with the development of a water budget or water accounting? The California Department of Water Resources has compiled guidance, methods, and examples of water budgeting in the Draft Handbook for Water Budget Development: With or Without Models. In this webinar, handbook authors Abdul Khan, Todd Hillaire, and Paul Shipman will present an overview of the Water Budget Handbook, answer questions about water budgeting, and solicit feedback.
