It is worth noting that the importance of water management has increased significantly with the development of water resources to counter the effects of climate change. In implementing the 5T initiative, the water resources department has been able to address this challenge to a large extent.

From these daily and hourly data collected during the rainy season, water resource assessment, rainfall forecasting, rain-related disaster management, water supply through canals for agriculture, and management of small, medium and large reservoirs will be done through this hydrological data center.

Apart from this, the data of the State Hydrological Data Center will be provided for inter-departmental use and analysis such as agriculture and farmer empowerment, special relief commissioner and disaster management department, panchayatiraj and drinking water department, forest, environment and climate change department. For this, the Water Resources Department is taking steps to design and develop the Water ERP portal.
