LOS ANGELES, Calif., April 16, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Civic Resource Group International (CRG) today announced immediate availability of its award-winning CivicConnect™ Water Conservation and Drought Management Platform to all the Cities and Water Agencies throughout California.

As Governor Brown has officially mandated water restrictions/conservation throughout the State of California, CRG is proactively stepping up its efforts to raise the awareness of availability of its CivicConnect™ Water Conservation and Drought Management Platform primarily in drought-stricken State of California. In the near future the Solution will be made available to the states also affected by the drought – Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Washington, and Wyoming among them.

The first release of CivicConnect™ Water Conservation and Drought Management Solution was pioneered in California. The application was originally developed with support from the California Department of Water Resources and Federal Bureau of Land Management. This project represented a groundbreaking approach to Water Conservation on a regional basis, and was awarded the California Internet Project of the Year. Today the Solution is in full production in a SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) model for the City of San Diego.

The new cloud-based version is deployable in rapid and cost-effective manner, without traditional investment in new hardware. Most importantly, the cloud-based nature of the Solution allows for easy replication for virtually any interested customer.

Built on the first-of-a-kind CivicConnect™ Mobile/Cloud/Data Platform 3.0, CivicConnect™ Water is a comprehensive online water conservation/management system. The system includes a unique GIS Landscape Area Measurement (LAM) Tool which allows agencies to create accurate measurements of customer sites for water budgeting and tracking purposes. The system integrates the consumption and billing data with sophisticated infrared imagery for classifying vegetation, satellite imagery for viewing/validating, parcel data layers, and real time evapotranspiration data from State managed CIMIS stations and sensors throughout the county to automatically create a range of water budget targets, reports, and analyses for individual business and residential customers as well as the agency.

The system utilizes cloud applications, big data, analytics, and can be utilized horizontally across any given city government or water agency to connect data/service offerings between agencies’ personnel and consumers of water resources through online and mobile services.
