Report from S&T Project 20077: Open Data Pilot for Integrating BOR River and Reservoir Topographic and Sediment Data Into RISE

The Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) conducts sedimentation surveys of reservoirs for various purposes. Typically, the survey effort results in a final report, one or more area-capacity (ACAP) tables, and geospatial data (e.g., a final surface, points, contour lines, or a digital elevation model [DEM]). This project allowed for the inclusion of sedimentation survey data from 95 reservoirs in the Reclamation Information Sharing Environment (RISE). It also created a guidance document, RISE Reference for Reservoir Sedimentation Survey Reports, ACAP Tables, and Geospatial Data, that specifies the steps for publishing Reclamation reservoir sedimentation survey reports and data in RISE.
