To assist in the management of water resources in the Santa Ana River Basin, in Southern California, the Bureau of Reclamation in Denver, Colorado and the Santa Ana Watershed Project Authority in Riverside, California have developed a Geographic Information System (GIS) and a water resources Relational Database Management System (RDBMS). The GIS and RDBMS are integrated in a seamless environment. Each water district within the Santa Ana River Basin will have access to the integrated GIS and RDBMS through the use of a Wide Area Network (WAN) of computers. Information is provided describing the integrated GIS and RDBMS system, the establishment of the WAN, and related distributed processing software issues.
