20 Future Plans  Incorporate Truckee & Carson River CAD data  Incorporate water right ownership data  Add groundwater pumpage and water level data  Improve database queries  Move the site to the Internet

21 Quick Facts Databases Permit database - 83,500 records Well Log database - 95,000 records Titles database – 35,000 records Scanned Images 52,000 maps 89,000 well logs 16,500 certificates 6,500 orders and rulings

22 Current Water Rights Database Tracks status, history, and ownership of water rights Linked to some of the divisions scanned documents Excellent reporting capabilities

23 Planned Water Rights Database Link to additional scanned documents (permits, rulings, orders, well logs etc.) Link to Pumpage and water level data Link to relevant photos Web Based Query and Reporting tools Web based application available to the public Access to more of the divisions data from one interface Add the ability to query data spatially
