We drive performance-based water management through technology, education, and consulting.
Mammoth Water, a public benefit corporation, has led the development and implementation of the world’s most advanced surface and groundwater markets in the world – called smart markets. The rollout of Mammoth Water’s smart markets over 500K irrigated acres has reduced search and transaction costs of water trading for thousands of America’s food producers. We make water trading more affordable, accessible, and equitable.
In addition to being leading experts in water markets, Mammoth Water’s team has expertise in water governance and policy, water data management, and incentive-based program design. Our team is passionate about developing trusted technology solutions that achieve regulatory compliance and conservation goals, with experience across the western United States – including Arizona, California, Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, Washington, and Wyoming.
At Mammoth Water, we’re driven by stewardship, ensuring that our precious water resources are available to support the lives and livelihoods of our children, grandchildren, and generations to come.
We build software that helps agricultural producers—the primary stewards of water—track, trade, and report water use efficiently. We further help water managers and corporations manage complex water data, monitor program performance, and boost results.
We start with domain expertise in water management and agricultural economics. Next, we add expert listening to understand your specific needs and goals. Then we develop smarter, simpler technology solutions to supercharge your work.
Our team has decades of experience in agricultural water management.
