StateWB was developed to calculate a basin-wide water balance and generate a consumptive use (CU) and losses summary.
- Uses a Microsoft Access database to calculate an area’s water budget and generates CU and losses reports
- Relies on a mass balance equation in which inflows minus outflows equal changes in storage
- Calculates the water budget on a monthly, annual, or average annual time step
- Calculate the water budget on a basin-wide scale
|StateWB Model Version 2
||StateWB, the State of Colorado's Water Budget and Consumptive Use and Losses Reporting Tool, was developed to perform three functions: 1) a basin wide water balance, 2) generate a Consumptive Use and Losses Summary, and 3) generate a Consumptive Use and Losses Report. StateWB is a Microsoft Access database which utilizes custom forms for data entry and queries for performing the mass balance of a water budget and generating the CU and Losses reports on a monthly, annual, or average annual time step.

|Colorado Basin Consumptive Uses and Losses Report
||The Colorado River Basin Tributaries in Colorado Consumptive Uses and Losses Report, 1971 through 2005, was generated through StateWB. Report, tables and graphs are summarized in five-year increments.
