Big Data & The Future Of California Water

From the drought to the delivery system, and everything in between, learn how Moulton Niguel Water District is leveraging data to better manage our water systems and our customers’ water needs.

At first glance, water agencies don’t seem to have much in common with academic universities, social media organizations or technology companies. However, as the California drought worsened and became a global phenomenon, corporate giants like Microsoft, Facebook, and Netflix, and higher education and research institutions such as Stanford, UC Davis and Claremont Graduate University, joined forces with innovative water agencies to help address the California water crisis.

Moulton Niguel helped co-found the California Data Collaborative, a first-of-its kind, diverse partnership representing 21 million Californians, initiated by water managers who identified a need to provide agencies throughout California with access to data in a transparent, secure and efficient manner.
