Internet of Texas Water: Use Cases for Flood, Drought, and Surface Water - Groundwater Interactions


Experts representative of Texas’ water sectors identified critical water data needs and described the design of a compre­hensive open access data system that facilitates use of public water data in Texas at the April 2018 Connecting Texas Water Data Workshop as reported in the Texas Water Journal. Participants described potential use cases to initiate work on the most critical data hubs for connecting Texas water data. This note is an update to work on the Internet of Texas Water Data initiative that describes progress on a flood dashboard by the Texas Water Development Board and development of use cases by workgroups of stakeholders with expertise in water data for drought and for surface water–groundwater interactions.
