First, a creative video challenge for program promotional materials. They will tell the stories of why these technologies are critically important to the 320 million Americans who need timely and effective responses to emergencies and disasters. It will be posted here on Challenge.gov and on Tongal.com. Second, an ideation challenge for ideal concepts to create an environment in which VR/AR and immersive environments can be effectively measured for user interfaces and experiences — a repeatable and physical test environment. This one is in the works and super exciting! The programs will continue over the next five years, so check back often. To interact with us: You can sign up for our email list and get alerts and news. Post a comment or question on the discussion board. Register here at Challenge.gov through the “Follow agency” orange button on the top right of this page, and we’ll keep you posted on the latest launches, news, and winners.

Welcome to the Bureau of Reclamation‘s Water Prize Competition Center on Challenge.gov.  We are seeking bright and creative minds with great ideas that will help us solve critical water problems. Launching Winter 2016/17 – Reduction to Practice Challenge: Sub-Seasonal Forecast Rodeo – Beat NOAA About: Reclamation and NOAA have teamed up to find solvers willing to submit forecasts of temperature and precipitation for one year, competing in real-time against other teams, as well as official forecasts from NOAA Details: http://www.usbr.gov/research/challenges/upcoming/index.html Launching Fall 2016 – Grand Challenge: More Water – Less Concentrate About: As the demand for fresh water increases, the need to develop new water supplies from non-traditional water sources, such as saline (brackish) groundwater and surface water using desalination technologies continues to grow Details: http://www.usbr.gov/research/challenges/upcoming/index.html 7/12/2016 Preventing Rodent Burrows in Earthen Embankments About: Asking for ways to stop and prevent rodents from burrowing into earthen embankments of dams, canals, and levees Details: https://www.challenge.gov/challenge/preventing-rodent-burrows-in-earthen-embankments/ Status: Under Evaluation 3/7/2016 Downstream Fish Passage at Tall Dams About: Seeking new ideas for successful and cost-effective downstream passage for migrating juvenile fish to help recover threatened and endangered species such as salmon and steelhead Details: https://www.challenge.gov/challenge/downstream-fish-passage-at-tall-dams/ Status: Awarded 3/7/2016 Detecting Soil Movement in Earthen Embankments About: Soliciting innovative methods for detecting soil particle movement both directly or indirectly and earlier in earthen structures and foundations Details: https://www.challenge.gov/challenge/detecting-soil-movement-in-earthen-embankments/ Status: Awarded Throughout the year, we will also launch prize competitions that target specific problems within the following three domains:   Water Availability – Water availability is critical to meeting the needs of a growing population and economy.  Water managers face significant challenges in meeting current and future water demands for agriculture, municipal, industrial, Native American, rural, recreation, power generation, and ecosystem needs. Aquatic Ecosystem Restoration – Protecting and restoring aquatic and riparian environments is vital to ensuring that our watersheds are healthy and able to continue providing water supplies that can meet the multitude of competing uses for water in the arid Western United States. Infrastructure Sustainability – A safe, well-maintained, and reliable inventory of dams, pipelines, hydropower generation facilities, canals, and levees is key to making water available to meet the water needs of the Western United States and our Nation as a whole. The Bureau of Reclamation is an agency of the United States Federal Government with a mission of managing water for multiple uses in the arid Western United States, where elevation and climate are highly variable, ranging from mountains to desert, and floods to droughts.  Ensuring sustainable and ample supplies of water that are able to meet the spectrum of societal and environmental needs is a mission that intersects multiple Federal agencies.  As such, we are collaborating with other agencies to seek your help finding new and better solutions to those critical problems where we have a shared interest and responsibility. Learn more about Reclamation’s prize goals and give your feedback on the Reclamation Research page.
