Water Control Room in Colombia

The HERMANA Water Control Room helps water managers from the Cauca Valley area in Colombia to make operational, tactical and strategic decisions for sustainably managing their water resources. It combines Delft-FEWS data on weather and surface and groundwater levels with satellite-based drought information from InfoSequia. HERMANA consists of a set of tailored dashboards – including drought, meteorology and water supply dashboards – that are optimally tailored to the Colombian water authorities’ decision-making processes. In this way, it contributes to a more balanced management of surface and groundwater resources and improves water security.
