Research Project Full Title: Water Operations Model
Principal Investigator(s): Tim Whiteaker
Researchers: David Maidment
Sponsor(s): Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ)
Full Abstract: This project continues to develop information and tools to assist TCEQ in managing water use during drought conditions, priority call determinations, and will be used for daily water management activities in Watermaster areas. In addition, TCEQ has a business need for updates to existing GIS tools. In this fiscal year, UTA will continue to develop the Water Operations Model for drought management in the Brazos Basin, and continue work in the Guadalupe/San Antonio River Basin to update and maintain the model. UTA will also work on upgrading the WRAP GUI tool to function in the current ArcGIS environment.
