Join the team defining the future of water management!

The CaDC operates under a software as a service model where utilities pay a fixed fee annually to support the ongoing maintenance and cleaning of the utilities data as well as access to all previous analytics developed and to support the scope of work to develop additional analytics based on utility input.  As part of the on-boarding process, utilities sign an analytics agreement that maintains data privacy subject to sharing with research institutions after written authorization by the respective agency.


  • Shared resources for cost-effective project development and evaluation
