Watershed Academy Webcast on “Using New Water Quality Portal”

On October 23, from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET, EPA’s Watershed Academy will host a webinar for water quality managers and others to learn more about the new Water Quality Portal (Portal) for water quality data – a team effort by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Geological Survey, and the National Water Quality Monitoring Council (NWQMC). The Portal brings together chemical, physical and microbiological data from EPA’s Storage and Retrieval Data Warehouse (STORET) and USGS’s National Water Information System (NWIS) and provides it to scientists, policy-makers, and the public in a single, user-friendly web interface. The Portal reduces the burden to data users of searching, compiling, and formatting water monitoring data for analysis  This Webinar will also highlight EPA’s Water Quality Exchange (WQX-Web) which is a web-based data entry tool that enables data owners to upload their data so the public has access to the data through the new Water Quality Portal.  This webinar will include both informational presentations and a demonstration of the Portal in action. Users can access the Portal at www.waterqualitydata.us<http://www.waterqualitydata.us/>.

Webcast participants are eligible to receive a certificate for their attendance.  Register for this free webinar at www.epa.gov/watershedwebcasts<file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/AWeinber/Local%20Settings/Temp/notes87944B/www.epa.gov/watershedwebcasts>.
