Owens Introduces the Water Data Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Reps. Burgess Owens (UT-04) and Melanie Stansbury (NM-01) introduced the Water Data Act, bipartisan legislation to improve water data infrastructure for better decision-making and management of water resources.

“Across the west, farmers, ranchers, and industries are experiencing the worst drought in over 1,200 years, making a collaborative approach critical for water management,” said Rep. Owens. “The Water Data Act replaces out-of-date, hard-to-use information with real-time, accurate data that will help communities in their around-the-clock efforts to deliver and conserve water. On behalf of Utahns in the Fourth District and Americans across the west, I am proud to support this important bill to increase efficiency, conservation, and water usage.”

The full text of the Water Data Act is available here.
