AWQMS Storet logoBackground

Historically, the Division of Water Quality has utilized a STORET database for management of its water quality and biological data, and field parameters. In the fall of 2009, EPA discontinued support for data submissions via the distributed STORET database.

EPA has since promoted the development of Exchange Network Nodes or Node Clients as part of the National Environmental Information Exchange Network for states to submit a wide range of environmental data to national repositories.

The Utah DWQ, in conjunction with the Exchange Network, has developed a data storage solution with the WQX schema known as the Ambient Water Quality Management System (AWQMS).
