Problem #4

Climate change modeling shows that rain events will become more intense, necessitating systems that can capture greater volumes of water in a shorter period of time. Storm water capture systems would allow for this intense delivery of water to be stored in groundwater basins to hold for future use.
However, it is difficult to measure how much water a water agency has captured and reintroduced into the groundwater basin during a storm event and to determine how much additional water each agency will have available for future use.

Objective of Solution:

Create smart systems that:
1) Work to record data as storm water is replenished into groundwater basins by location;
2) Calculate how much water that was available per storm event that was not collected.

Who does this affect?
Municipal water district management and California water rate payers.
