Water Funder Initiative launching Project Water Data

WFI is proud to support the launch of Project Water Data, an effort to work with federal, state, and local governments, as well as private- and social-sector partners, to modernize data systems that support healthy communities, thriving agricultural systems, and clean waterways for our wildlife.

With seed funding provided by WFI’s philanthropic partners, and with support from the Association of California Water Agencies, the City of Los Angeles, the Colorado Water Conservation Board, Environmental Defense Fund, DC Water, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District, Northern California Water Association, the State and Federal Contractors Water Agency, The Nature Conservancy, Trout Unlimited, the Aspen Institute, and others, Project Water Data will:

  • Mobilize a coalition to highlight the value of open, integrated water data in supporting better decision-making and citizen engagement and develop a core set of principles for open and integrated water data systems.
  • Unlock water data from all sectors and develop products that increase the discoverability, usability, and interoperability of data.
