Water Board Data Fair

Location: California Environmental Protection Agency 1001 I Street Sacramento, CA 95812
Description:

The Water Boards’ Office of Information Management and Analysis (OIMA) is proud to announce two data-minded events this year. The role of OIMA is to help turn data into information, and make this data and information more accessible to all, across the programs and offices of the Water Board.  These events are designed to engage internal and external partners in conversations about the data – how they collect it, how they store it, where and how they make access to the data, and what is means when they ask it to inform our management questions.  Stay tuned for more news on the data front. Follow them on Twitter at @CaWaterDataDive and @swamp_water_ca for updates and related content. Their Data and Databases page is also a good resource to keep handy.

 2018 Water Board Data Fair – March 30, 2018 – Sacramento, CA

The Water Boards will be hosting the 2nd Biennial Water Board Data Fair on March 30, 2018 in Sacramento, CA, from 9 a.m., to 3:30 p.m.  The goal of this "open house" is to share and discuss their data and data systems with their data community, including those who have to report it, those who just consume and use it, and everyone in between.  This year they are pleased to announce that their water-technology partner, ImagineH20, will be bringing some of their colleagues and innovators to the event. Event details and registration information are available on the attached agenda.

To support their mission to continually improve their data management ecosystem they are asking people to complete a short survey this year about how they interact with their data.  Regardless of your plans to participate in the activities and discussions on March 30, please consider completing our survey (and share it with your colleagues).
