SWIIM has been deployed throughout mutiple regions to manage scarce water supplies. Surface water areas include the Colorado River in California, the Central Valley Project in California and the South Platte River Basin in Colorado. Also included are groundwater supplies in areas including the Central Valley and the San Luis Basin in Southern Colorado. Below, you will find case studies that further explains a few of our use cases. The applications for SWIIM, of course, far exceed these example cases as do the regions in which we serve.

Growers Use SWIIM to Monitor and Report Water Use, Consider Regional Conservation
Growers and district look at SWIIM for district-wide analysis of water application and related consumption; in addition to potentially simultaneously meeting newly-availed, state-mandated reporting of aggregated water use as it relates to groundwater recharge.
As The Trusted On-Farm Water Accountant, SWIIM Helps Confirm Savings Against An Established Baseline
Growers participate in their district’s on-farm conservation incentive program, which pays money based on the amount of water conserved. SWIIM was able to certify conservation on their acres under management & act as their trusted advocate when it came time to be paid for saved water.
Colorado Grower Used SWIIM and Generated Additional Income
Using SWIIM, grower conserved water and quantified saved water usage; provided it to a dairy owner; and generated new income stream, alongside continued farming with the remaining water allocation for the year, without injuring his water right.
