WISE Project History
The Water Infrastructure and Supply Efficiency (WISE) regional water partnership between Aurora Water, Denver Water and South Metro Water Supply Authority exemplifies a collaborative and innovative approach to meeting Colorado’s water supply challenges. Sharing available water supplies and infrastructure capacity reduces groundwater reliance. It also bolsters renewable water supplies to the South Metro area, and maximizes existing water supply usage.
The WISE Web Portal is a resource allocation tool for placing water and capacity orders from the WISE system. The portal tracks the orders as multiple users make requests and designations for a sophisticated series of options. Interactive alerts inform users about changes, opportunities, and resource request outcomes to facilitate planning and operations. The Portal plays a significant role in the daily operations of the WISE project. It enables timely communication between water managers and operators.
Flexible Web Architecture
The flexible web architecture ensures that the Portal can adapt to operational changes and function throughout the project. The Portal is built on a non-proprietary platform, including Ubuntu Linux, Apache web-server, MySQL and PostgreSQL databases, PHP scripts (LAMP) and a Drupal website.
