In our last post we discussed the opportunity and challenge in collecting, analyzing, and communicating water risk. The next important task is keeping track of changes to the diverse set of risk indicators and the variables that impact water risk analysis. However, in today’s modern world of instant communication, fluctuations in climate, and layers of regulatory rules it is imperative that changes are tracked. Knowing the water risk of a portfolio or water district last year is helpful, but much can change in a year.
Government Monitoring Data
The U.S. Geological Survey, the Department of Water Resources, and the State Water Resources Control Board each have sites dedicated to providing useful monitoring information such as reservoir levels, snowpack, and river flows. However, you need some water expertise and the capability of adding that information into a system that can produce actionable insights for your specific organizational needs.
