The Water Transfer Information Management System (WTIMS) is an online web application developed by the State of California Department of Water Resources (DWR) to help facilitate preparation of water transfer proposals that will be submitted to DWR for consideration. A water transfer is a voluntary sale of water proposed and initiated by willing sellers who have legal rights to a supply of water to an interested buyer. The Seller must take specific actions within the Seller’s service area to make water available to the buyer that would not be water available in the watercourse absent the transfer, "new water". Please refer to DWR’s water transfer webpage and the White Paper for additional information:
In order to access the system, Seller must establish a secure User ID and Password by clicking request a Login ID in the home page of WTIMS.
