Texas Water Journal publishes new program review: Internet of Texas water

The Texas Water Journal has published a new program review in the Volume 11 issue, titled “Internet of Texas Water: Use Cases for Flood, Drought, and Surface Water–Groundwater Interactions,” by Rudolph A. Rosen, Robert E. Mace, Sam Marie Hermitte and Richard Wade.

This review is an update to the previously published journal article, An Internet for Water: Connecting Texas Water Data, that discussed results from a Connecting Texas Water Data workshop. At the April 2018 Connecting Texas Water Data workshop, 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.

According to the abstract, participants described potential use cases to initiate work on the most critical data hubs for connecting Texas water data. This program review describes progress on a flood dashboard by the Texas Water Development Board and the development of use cases by workgroups of stakeholders with expertise in water data for drought and for surface water–groundwater interactions.

The journal — an online, peer-reviewed journal published by the nonprofit and the Texas Water Resources Institute — publishes papers as they are completed. It is devoted to the timely consideration of Texas water resources management, research and policy issues from a multidisciplinary perspective that integrates science, engineering, law, planning and other disciplines. It also provides updates on key state legislation and policy changes by Texas administrative agencies.
