Agencies responsible for a monitoring location are listed in the attributes ORGANIZATIONIDENTIFIER and ORGANIZATIONFORMALNAME. For the display, query, and analysis of legacy and current hydrology spatial and tabular data; Consolidate and centralize a very diverse range and quantity of monitoring location site data from numerous programs and protocols; Mitigate the duplication of monitoring location data across shared systems; Allow for single-source identification and management of monitoring location sites that are "co-located"; Provide a single point of data entry, management, query, analysis, and display of water quality data from numerous sources, including STORET which are sourced from an accurate monitoring location database; Enable spatial relationship of water quality monitoring data to High-Resolution USGS NHD Reaches through the use of modern GIS, database, and statistics software; Support USGS and EPA standards for spatial and non-spatial hydrology and water quality data exchange and sharing. Very important details are included in the attached metadata document and should be read thouroughly before these data are used.
