USGS - science for a changing world

Water-Use Data and Research program

Water-Use Open Forum

Discussion at the Water-Use Data and Research Program stakeholder listening sessions hosted by ICWP, showed that many involved in water-use data collection, data management, and regulation have a desire to continue communicating about challenges and solutions to water-use data issues, such as data collection, storage, QA/QC, analysis and data dissemination. USGS is pleased to host these meetings as the Water-Use Open Forum.
