Applied Research in Government Operations (ARGO) is a startup non-profit that builds, operates and maintains a public data infrastructure to transform how water reliability, street quality or other basic public services are delivered. Team ARGO staffs a coalition of water managers working together to deploy open source analytics and ensure water reliability no matter what the future holds. Learning from the tradition of visionary technocratic excellence in the California water community, we’re building a new kind of public institution, the world’s first data utility.
