Foundations for California's Water Security in a Changing Climate

The cornerstone of water security, and priority need for California, is a modern, robust water-information system that enables accurate, timely, and transparent accounting through the water-supply and use cycle.  This system must extend from mountain headwaters through valley groundwater.
