Transcript of "Utah Water Quality Monitoring Data"

  1. 1. I N T R O D U C T I O N T O T H E D A T A B A S E D I V I S I O N T R A I N I N G S E S S I O N # 1 M A Y 3 0 , 2 0 1 2 DWQ Monitoring’s Water Quality Data
  2. 2. • DATA COLLECTION • DATA MANAGEMENT • DATABASE INTRODUCTION • GOALS AND NEXT STEPS Data: From River to Database
  3. 3. Monitoring for Data • Strategic Monitoring Plan • Definitions of Data “Types” • Definitions of Data “Sets”
  4. 4. Monitoring’s Strategic Monitoring Plan A Tiered and Adaptive Framework
  5. 5. Monitoring’s Strategic Monitoring Plan A Rotating Basin Approach Water year – October 1 through September 30 Jordan River-Utah Lake Basins sampled 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012
  6. 6. Monitoring’s Data “Types” Currently able to Import to New Database Lab data – data obtained from laboratory analysis State Lab AWAL Field Data – data obtained in the field with multi-sonde Hydrolab In Situ YSI Flow data – measured in the field Measured by field staff Measured by gage** E. coli data – E. coli samples processed/analyzed by field staff Quanti-Tray (18 and 24 hour)
  7. 7. Monitoring’s Data “Types” Currently not Imported to New Database Macroinvertebrate – summary data about richness/diversity USU Bug Lab Larry Gray Diatom, Phytoplankton, Zooplankton, Sediment Rushforth Phycology Larry Gray USU Soils Lab University of Utah Labs Fish data – counts, diversity data collected in the field Fish data – mercury data derived from tissue Logger data – interval data Temperature loggers Pressure transducers Observational data – data derived from field observations UCASE field forms Wetland Vegetation and Bird surveys Photos
  8. 8. Monitoring’s Data “Sets” Commonly Used Terms Lake data – all types of data collected on a lake activity Lab samples collected at surface, possible mid and bottom depths Field data collected at depth of lab samples Field data collected at depth intervals from surface to bottom Observational data collected from secchi reading Phyoplankton data collected below surface Cooperator data – all types of data collected by a cooperator Lab samples collected at site Field data collected with lab sample Flow data collected at site or from gaging station Volunteer USU data – data from USU Extension volunteers Observational data collected from secchi reading E. coli data collected, and/or processed and analyzed by volunteer Special Studies data – data for special studies Willard Spur Nutrient Project
  9. 9. Monitoring’s Data “Sets” Other Commonly Used Terms QC Data – all types of data collected with a quality control activity Trip Blanks (Lab samples, E. coli) Field Blanks (Lab samples, E. coli) Equipment Blanks (Lab samples) Duplicates (Lab samples, Field data, E. coli) Replicates (Lab samples, Field data, E. coli) Organic data – organic parameter data Lab Lab data reported with different template
  10. 10. Monitoring’s Data Management • Data Management History • New Data Management • Database Use
  11. 11. Monitoring’s Data Management History Local Version of STORET Software-dependent “Data request”-driven sharing No longer supported by EPA Replaced with Water Quality Exchange - “WQX”
  12. 12. Monitoring’s Data Management AWQMS/WQX Utah installed “out-of-the-box” AWQMS database Gold Systems funded with Exchange Network grant Web-based application Migrated all “historic” data Parallel to EPA’s WQX database Currently in-development to add enhancements Data validation tools Data query tools …and more AWQMS User’s Community “Community Software” approach
  13. 13. Monitoring’s Data Management AWQMS/WQX Test versus Production External Access Access outside of DEQ Firewall Cooperator Access Public Access Database Support Monitoring Section’s new hire Trisha Johnson DTS – Rob Sandberg Gold Systems
  14. 14. Monitoring’s Database Use Manage and store data centrally QC data and track changes Submit data to EPA Internal access to data for reporting and assessment External access to Cooperators for data submission and data access
  15. 15. Monitoring’s Database Datasets Currently Imported to New Database “Historic” Data –data previously stored in BlueFish/STORET 1974 through ~March 2009 2009 Data – data collected in 2009 Lab data from March – Dec. 2009 (except Lake, Organic, some QC Data) Field data from March – Dec. 2009 (except Lake, Organic, some QC Data) Flow data from March – Dec. 2009 2010 Data – data collected in 2010 Lab data from 2010 (except Lake, Organic, some QC Data)
  16. 16. Monitoring’s Database Datasets To be Imported to New Database 2009 Data Lake data (Lab and Field) E. coli data Organic and QC data (Lab) 2010 Data Field data Lake data (Lab and Field) Organic and QC data (Lab) E. coli data 2011 Data All Lab data All Field data E. coli data
