Interactive Water Management Model
The California Water Foundation has developed an interactive three dimensional model to visually depict the challenges and opportunities for integrated regional water management. The model includes several animations that highlight the impacts of different water management challenges and strategies, such as groundwater overdraft, integrated groundwater management, and levee systems. Additional improvements to the model will be made in the future. Please feel free to manipulate or reproduce the model for non-profit, educational, or research purposes, however, by making use of the model you agree to the following: California Water Foundation, an initiative of Resources Legacy Fund, reserves and retains all intellectual property rights to the model, including but not limited to copyright, which ownership shall be attributed to Resources Legacy Fund in any reproduction of the model.

CWF Launches Stakeholder Dialogue on Groundwater Management Reform
CWF announced that the organization is convening a diverse group of stakeholders to prepare policy recommendations on groundwater management reform. The result of CWF’s effort will be a report to Governor Brown and the State Legislature with recommendations for achieving sustainable groundwater management that prepares for future droughts, avoids and reverses harm, protects water quality and the environment, reduces conflict among water users, and enhances the use of groundwater as a valuable source of water storage.
CWF Information Bank Now Available
As part of the Groundwater Management Stakeholder Dialogue, CWF is developing an online Information Bank available to the public to promote transparency and understanding about groundwater management. The first set of resources has just been launched, and more resources will be added as the dialogue continues.
