Where We Work

Transforming Water Data Management through Collaboration

The Internet of Water Coalition has built strong partnerships with state, local, and tribal government agencies, water utilities, non-profits, and community science organizations across the country. Through these partnerships, we support the modernization of water data infrastructure and tools, giving water managers, policy-makers, and the public the ability to make informed decisions.
