Long-Term Water Management Planning in California

The Department of Water Resources, CA (DWR) and US Bureau of Reclamation mid-pacific region (USBR), have developed a screening model for planning and management of State Water Project and Central Valley Project in California. CalLite simulated water conditions in the valley over an 82-year planning period, taking into consideration reservoir operations and storage options and providing a basis for analysis of alternative water management strategies.

CalLite now serves as a key screening tool for proposed water management projects throughout California, and bridges the gap between more detailed system models and stakeholder demand for rapid and interactive policy evaluations.
