About the Alaska Water Level Watch

Our vision is to increase public access to water level data and products through innovative technologies and collaborative partnerships and to expand the coastal water level observation capacity across Alaska’s coastline.

Our Mission

The AWLW steering committee will establish a framework for a sustained collaborative team consisting of state and federal agencies, local governing entities, non-profits, private businesses, and communities to:


  • Enable the effective and efficient sharing of information.
  • Foster leveraging of available resources.
  • Provide improved services to mutual customers.
  • Provide assistance in identifying and prioritizing actions to fill water level monitoring gaps.
  • Promote advancement of water level sensing technologies for use in Alaska’s coastal waters.
