California Regional Data Centers

Establishing vocabulary, using the template checker, and submitting data can be done through ceden@waterboards.ca.gov and this website without fees. However, additional CEDEN support can be obtained from a Regional Data Center (RDC). RDCs are the Water Boards' partners in furthering the goals of CEDEN. Although their assistance costs money, they can provide a variety of data preparation and management services. They can load data into their local databases, which then transfers to CEDEN on a weekly basis. Keep reading for more information, including contact information, on each RDC.
