Where We Work
The Internet of Water collaborative projects are extensive collaborations with our partners. We value these opportunities to address challenges to integrated water management and view these partnerships as critical to our success.
Collaborative projects help us to quantify the benefits of integrated water data and garner support and investment for the data infrastructure needed for sustainable water management.
New Mexico’s water management challenges are complex and well known. One critical attribute of these challenges is the ability of the state, local, and tribal leaders and other stakeholders to marshal the data and information necessary to support sustainable water management decisions.
The Internet of Water is collaborating with New Mexico to support their efforts to integrate water data from across the state from various agencies and stakeholders.
New Mexico Water Data Act
New Mexico agencies, led by the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources (NMBGMR) developed the New Mexico Water Data Service. This was achieved in partnership with four other state agencies: the New Mexico Stream Commission (ISC), the New Mexico Office of the State Engineer (OSE), the New Mexico Environment Department (NMED), and the Energy, Minerals, and Natural Resources Department (EMNRD).
The Internet of Water is supporting partners in California on a series of projects to support the Open and Transparent Water Data Act of 2016 (AB1755). These include exploration of an early warning system for Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) and other efforts related to water quality in partnership with state and local stakeholders.
The Internet of Water is working with stakeholders in North Carolina to support resilience and mitigation planning, particularly for water utilities. Partnering with the NOAA Carolina’s Integrated Sciences and Assessments (CISA) and the North Carolina State Climate Office, the IoW is working with utilities to build an NC Water Supply Dashboard.
