Refinements of a Data-Model for Watershed Water Budget Analysis
Project Title: NJ194 - Refinements of a Data-Model for Watershed Water Budget Analysis
The overall objective of this project is to provide to the NJDEP a data model that can be used to develop a working database for various watershed planning, water supply planning and water management regulatory activities.
Statement of Problem
As part of a water-use database project for the USGS Districts in New England, a data model and database were created to provide a tool to better evaluate the water use in the region. As a result of this work, the NJDEP is interested in modifying the New England data model to be used in developing a working database for water budgets analysis at the HUC 11 and possibly the HUC 14 level.
Strategy and Approach
The basis of this study is the data model developed for the USGS New England Districts' wate-use inventory program. It is the intent of this study to:
