Focus Area Studies are stakeholder-driven assessments of water availability in river basins with known or potential conflict. They contribute toward ongoing assessments of water availability in large watersheds, provide opportunities to test and improve approaches to water availability assessment, and inform and ground truth the National Water Census with local information. Common to each of the three ongoing Focus Area Studies is the focus on key water-budget components and the integration of assessment tools, including computer models, to better understand the linkages among budget components—surface water and groundwater—and their relation to the ecosystems they support.
