|Water Resource Database||
The Water Resources Database (WRDB) is a comprehensive data storage system capable of providing data managementand analysis tools to users. A outstanding tool for water quality data analysis and modeling.
|How’s My Waterway App||
Learn the condition of local streams, lakes and other waters anywhere in the US... quickly and in plain language. See if your local waterway was checked for pollution, what was found, and what is being done. The source of this information is a US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) database of State water quality monitoring reports provided under the Clean Water Act.
|iTouchMap.com Latitude and Longitude of a Point Browser||
This iTouchMap.com Latitude and Longitude of a Point Browser, will assist users to locate and box an area of interest. This allows users to query data and summary information available within a given latitude/longitude bounding box. Two diagonal points can be used to populate bounding box limits (north,south,east,west). Detail Instructions for plotting two diagonal reference points can be found via the warehouse application help file Click Here. Contact STORET@EPA.GOV for more information.
|Partner Profiles & Contact Info - Node in the Exchange Network||
Exchangenetwork Node - Partner Contacts
|National Environmental Methods Index - NEMI||
The National Environmental Methods Index (NEMI) at www.nemi.gov - a free, web-based, searchable compendium of environmental methods.
|EPA Substance Registry System - SRS||
The EPA Substance Registry System (SRS) is a database of names and codes used within EPA and in STORET to represent chemical and biological substances and physical properties of interest to EPA and its partners. Looking for information about a substance? Search by CAS Number, Name, Taxonomic Serial Number, Molecular Formula, Chemical Type, Definition, or Alternate Identifier.
|Integrated Taxonomic Information System - ITIS
The Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS) is a partnership of U.S., Canadian, and Mexican agencies, other organizations, and taxonomic specialists cooperating on the development of an on-line, scientifically credible, list of biological names focusing on the biota of North America.
|Catalogue of Life - ITIS and Species 2000
The Catalogue is published as two products:
|EnviroMapper for Water||
A map-based query tool with access to Legacy and Modern STORET sampling stations. Using this tool, you can zoom in on any area of the United States, and examine the map for locations of streams, roads, political boundaries, and other features. You can add Legacy or Modern STORET water quality monitoring stations to the map, and select them for downloading data.
MyEnvironment is a powerful map-based tool that provides a wide range of federal, state, and local information about environmental conditions and features in an area of your choice. This application is provided by U.S. EPA in partnership with federal, state and local government and other organizations.
|The Exchange Network Browser||
The Exchange Network Browser access the PRODUCTION Environment of the Exchange Network. This tool lets people retrieve data from environmental data providers who have published
environmental and health data on the Exchange Network and registered their data with the Exchange Network Discovery Service.
Seach using Map. Search using Environmental Interest. Browse ALL...
|Integration Test Tool - Node in the Exchange Network||
This application provides the ability to test any Node in the Exchange Network,
by triggering Network WSDL-compliant requests on that Node. If a Node passes a test with this tool,
if is very likely, if not guaranteed, that the Node will be interoperable with other Network WSDL-compliant
Nodes. This tool, which is intended to verify general compliance with the Functional Specification, focuses
on interoperability among Nodes.
|Data Quality and Assessment Management Tools||
Data Quality Assessment is used to assess the type, quantity, and quality of data in order to verify that the planning objectives, Quality Assurance Project Plan components, and sample collection procedures were satisfied and that the data are suitable for its intended purpose. This link provides the EPA's documentations and tools to assess the data quality.
|Water Quality Assessment and ATTAINS||
The Assessment Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) Tracking and Implementation System (ATTAINS) provides information reported by the states to EPA about the conditions in their surface waters. This information is required every two years under Clean Water Act Sections 305(b) and 303(d).
|National Aquatic Resource Surveys||
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, states, and tribes are conducting a series of national aquatic resource surveys. Often referred to as probability-based surveys, these studies report on core indicators of water condition using standardized field and lab methods. The surveys include a national quality assurance program and are designed to yield unbiased, statistically-representative estimates of the condition of the whole water resource (such as rivers and streams, lakes, ponds, and reservoirs, wetlands, etc).
WATERS (Watershed Assessment, Tracking & Environmental ResultS) unites water quality information that was previously available only from several independent and unconnected databases.
|Surf Your Watershed||
Locate Your Watershed and find Watershed Health Information about a place of interest. Watersheds are based on the Hydrologic Unit Code (HUC) scheme developed by the United States Geological Survey, and provide coverage of the continental United States only.
|Nitrogen and Phosphorus Pollution Data Access Tool (NPDAT)||
The EPA Nitrogen and Phosphorus Pollution Data Access Tool (NPDAT) is a Web-based tool
intended to help states develop effective strategies for reducing nitrogen and phosphorus pollution.
The NPDAT consists of an introductory website, geospatial viewer, and data download tables.
|National Hydrography Dataset
The National Hydrography Dataset is a geospatial database that interconnects and uniquely identifies the "reaches" that comprise the nation's surface water drainage system. It is based upon the content of the USGS DLG integrated with reach-related information from the EPA RF3.
|Hydro Event Management Tools (see EPA Add-on Tools further down the page)
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has developed a supplemental set of indexing functions for the HEM, which are available through the HEM EPA Add-Ons toolbar. This toolbar allows users to create, edit and manage custom point, line and area events. The toolbar also includes functionality that was previously a part of the PC based Reach Indexing Tool (PC- RIT), such as Find Overlapping Waterbodies, Extract from EPA Program Events, and a post processing tool to aid in preparing events for submission to the EPA's Reach Address Database (RAD). For a complete list of HEM EPA Add-on tools please download the HEM EPA Add-On Tools flyer.
|USGS - National Water Information System - NWIS
