The UW/UI Collaborative Spatial Decision Making Home Page

CADSWES is an interdisciplinary Center for the research and development of decision support tools for management of water and environmental resources. The mission of CADSWES is to research, design, prototype and develop integrated decision support systems to help solve real-world water resources and environmental problems. Currently the primary research sponsors are the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, the Tennessee Valley Authority and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Through collaborative research projects at CADSWES these three agencies combine resources to develop common tools for river and reservoir system management. RiverWare, a modeling environment for reservoir system planning, operations and analysis, is licensed commercially through the University of Colorado to contribute to more effective water resources management globally.
