About RISE

The Reclamation Information Sharing Environment (RISE) is a system for viewing, accessing, and downloading Reclamation's data via a centralized data portal.

With RISE you can:

  • Access a range of data types (geospatial, time series, and other) from multiple data domains (e.g. water, hydropower, biological, water quality, and infrastructure/assets).
  • Locate data via the map.
  • Search the catalog for data.
  • Query and download observed and modeled data.
  • Plot and map data.
  • Get machine readable time series datasets to use as input for your models, applications and analyses via manual downloads or automated data exchange via web service.

RISE helps fulfill Reclamation’s responsibilities under the OPEN Government Data Act to make data assets available in open and machine-readable formats. RISE is the replacement for the Reclamation Water Information System (RWIS), which was retired in 2020.
