Integrated Report Call for Data and Credible Data Requirements
DWQ is pleased to announce that the Call for Data for the Division’s 2018 Integrated Report is now open. Please refer to the information below on how to submit your data. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Emilie Flemer at (801) 536-4105 or Email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Open: March 1st — midnight on April 30th
Update: March 29, 2017
The Call for Data for the 2018 Integrated Report is extended an additional 30-days. The Division of Water Quality is now accepting data and information submission packages until midnight on April 30th, 2017.
The Division of Water Quality (DWQ) of the Utah Department of Environmental Quality will be assessing the waters of the State (streams and lakes) to determine their support of designated beneficial uses for the 2018 Integrated Report. The Integrated Report (IR) includes the 305(b) assessment report and the 303(d) list of impaired waters. Beneficial uses include potential source of drinking water, primary and secondary contact recreation, aquatic life, and agriculture.
DWQ monitoring teams have collected water quality data over several years to be used for evaluating stream and lake water quality. To assist DWQ in making assessments, we are soliciting any additional water quality data from individuals or organizations that has been collected from October 1, 2010 through September 30, 2016. If any data were previously submitted to the water quality assessment program in previous IR Call’s for data, the data does not need to be submitted again.
The Assessment Program only uses high quality data for 305(b) and 303(d) assessment decisions. All data that are submitted for consideration in water quality assessments must meet the Assessment Program’s credible data requirements, which are provided below.
If you interested in submitting data to the Water Quality Assessment Program, please use the following data submission templates below:
- Biological Data
- E. coli Lake and Beach Closures Data
- Field/Chemistry/Laboratory Data
- High Frequency/Continuous Data
- Sample Site Location Information
Please be aware that additional information will need to be submitted in your data submission package. Information on what other documents are required is discussed in our Credible Data Requirement document provided in the section above.
The deadline for data submittal for the 2018 Integrated Report is midnight on April 30th, 2017. However, if possible, we recommend that data be submitted as soon as possible.
