SCIPP RISA releases Water Reservoir Data Visualization Tool

The Southern Climate Impacts Planning Program (SCIPP), a NOAA RISA program, released a new reservoir data visualization tool on October 26, 2015. The tool displays data for reservoirs located in Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana.


Meetings with drought managers and planners revealed that numerous user groups desire ready access to information describing current and historical reservoir levels across the region. This information is housed in different places and managed by multiple agencies, including the US Army Corps of Engineers, Bureau of Reclamation, river basin management authorities, and others.

This newly-released tool creates a unified source of accessible reservoir data for that region.

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2017, the United States experienced a record-tying 16 climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 362 lives, and had significant economic effects on the areas impacted, costing more than $306 billion. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
