The California Water Data Challenge

October 28 – December 5, 2016

The 2016 California Water Data Challenge was a first of its kind collaboration. The event, which concluded with the judging of entries on December 9, 2016, challenged participants to leverage open source technology and available water information to support decisions around water reliability and resource sustainability in California. Inspired by President Barack Obama’s commitment to improving open data and government, the Challenge demonstrated the potential for collaboration, transparency, and innovation to address our water management issues.
