System Operation Reviews (SOR) consist of: (1) An assessment of the potential for water management improvements in a river basin, system, or district and (2) A report identifying specific improvements to increase efficiency, including a plan of action for implementing the recommendations The recommendations can include physical improvements, such as modernizing a water delivery system, changing operations to improve water and energy efficiency, or facilitating water transfers or water marketing. The SOR may focus on a watershed, river basin, district, delivery system, or a portion thereof. Completing an SOR will help Indian tribes, districts, states, and other local entities with water delivery authority to identify potential projects and develop the supporting documentation necessary to apply for Water and Energy Efficiency Grants under the WaterSMART Program. Applicants who have already completed an SOR may receive additional points during the Water and Energy Efficiency Grant review process.
