Reclamation Water Information System

The Reclamation Water Information System (RWIS) is a pilot version of a Reclamation-wide system for viewing, accessing, and downloading Reclamation's data via a centralized data portal.The RWIS pilot serves representative time-series water data from each Reclamation region. With the 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.

This is a pilot system. Please notify us about any errors, bugs, data requests, feature recommendations, or other feedback so we can improve the site.
