ResOpsUS database provides historical reservoir operations for the majority of the US

This is the first national database to cover historical reservoir operations (i.e. inflows, outflows, storage and ET).  Existing datasets focus primarily on static reservoir attributes. We gathered data from many agencies across the US covering 679 major reservoirs. This covers 34% of all the reservoirs with storage greater than 10 MCM and 87% of Reservoirs with storage greater than 1,000 MCM.  We also collaborated with a team at Pacific Northwest National Lab to fit reservoir operating policies to this dataset.
