Description:
Abstract:
This data set provides a location map in ARCVIEW Shapefile format of selected water quality monitoring stations for 10 bacteria-related parameters. The stations and the monitoring data are extracted from the U.S. EPA Storage and Retrieval of US Waters Parametric Data (STORET) which is contributed to by a number of organizations including federal, state, interstate agencies, universities, contractors, individuals and water laboratories. Data updates are performed weekly. Each provider of data is responsible for the data it submits to STORET. Geographic coordinates for monitoring stations obtained using USGS 1:24,000 - 1:100,000-scale topographic map (depending on map availability).

For distribution with BASINS v.2.0, the spatial attributes of the database were prepared in Arcview shape file format while selected relational attributes were prepared in Arcview DBF file format.


Purpose:

The STORET database serves as a repository of waterway parametric data, including information on ambient, intensive survey, effluent and biological water quality.


Supplemental_Information:

Intended_use_of_data: This data set was prepared to support the U.S. EPA BASINS (Better Assessment Science Integrating Point and Nonpoint Sources) System, Version 2.0.

Process_Description:
The BASINS Bacteria Monitoring Stations and Data Summaries for the conterminous U.S. are created by retrieving the source data from the STORET database using the STORET MEAN program. Monitoring stations characterized as ambient stream, lake, reservoir, canal, estuary or ocean were selected. Summary statistics were computed by the program by station for 5-year intervals from 1970-1994. Statistics include number of observations, standard deviation, mean, 15th, 25th, 50th, 75th and 85th percentiles. A BASINS water quality station ID was assigned to each station in order to facilitate links and joins within BASINS between station data and the monitoring data summary. Geographic coordinates for monitoring stations are obtained using USGS 1:24,000 - 1:100,000-scale topographic map (depending on map availability). Bacteria monitoring station coordinates were screened for acceptance based on whether the station was located within the USGS Hydrologic Cataloging Unit boundaries associated with its EPA region. Bacteria stations located outside the boundaries were not included in this BASINS data product.

For distribution with BASINS v2.0, the ARC/INFO coverages in BASINS v1.0 that included the spatial extent of each of the ten U.S. EPA Regions, plus the 8-digit hydrologic units that crossed region boundaries were projected from Albers to Geographic projection and converted to ARCVIEW shapefiles.
