RiverWare Viewer Colorado River
RiverWare may be run in Full or Viewer mode. Running in full-featured mode requires a Program license, while running in Viewer mode requires a Viewer license (see below). We offer Viewer licenses at no cost to those users who would like to view the output of model runs, but do not need to build, modify or run models themselves.
