The Department of Homeland Security has a vital mission: to secure the nation from the many threats we face. This requires the dedication of more than 240,000 employees in jobs that range from aviation and border security to emergency response, from cybersecurity analyst to chemical facility inspector. Our duties are wide-ranging, but our goal is clear – keeping America safe.  Our duties are wide-ranging, but our goal is clear: a safer, more secure America, which is resilient against terrorism and other potential threats. The vision of homeland security is to ensure a homeland that is safe, secure, and resilient against terrorism and other hazards. Three key concepts form the foundation of our national homeland security strategy designed to achieve this vision: Security, Resilience, and Customs and Exchange. In turn, these key concepts drive broad areas of activity that the Quadrennial Homeland Security Review (QHSR) process defines as homeland security missions. These missions are enterprise-wide, and not limited to the Department of Homeland Security. These missions and their associated goals and objectives tell us in detail what it means to prevent, to protect, to respond, and to recover, as well as to build in security, to ensure resilience, and to facilitate customs and exchange.

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. Throughout the year,  Reclamation launches 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. We are seeking bright and creative minds with great ideas that will help us solve critical water problems. For information for current and upcoming competitions, Examples of Successful Reclamation Competitions to Date Reduction to Practice Challenge: Sub-Seasonal Forecast Rodeo 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 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 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 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 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.

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.
