California Data Exchange Center (CDEC)

With the cooperation of over 140 other agencies, the CDEC provides real-time, forecast, and historical hydrologic data. This data includes water discharge in rivers, water storage in reservoirs, precipitation accumulation, and water content in snow pack, primarily focused in flood management. However, the data is also helpful for determining general water availability and natural supply trends.
