Water Budget (StateWB)

StateWB uses inflow, outflow, and change-in-storage information to generate an overall water balance summary for a basin. This information is useful for visualizing and understanding major basin water demand and supply components. Data sets have been developed to provide an overall modeling framework in StateWB. These data sets and related documentation can be used as a baseline data set or as a starting point for the development of other data sets.

Major Features:
  • Data sets exist for the Rio Grande and South Platte basins and include basin or sub-basin surface and groundwater inflows, outflows, and changes in storage.
  • Starting point to understanding the basins' broad water resources.
Common Uses:
  • Input baseline model data as a starting point for a water budget model in StateWB.
