The webcast on "Water Quality Exchange: A Tool for Tribes, Volunteer Monitors and Others to Share WQ Data" has been rescheduled to March 13, 2013 at 1-3 pm EST due to Inclement weather!

Please join us for this webcast to learn more about how Tribes, volunteer monitoring organizations and others can enter their water quality monitoring data into the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Water Quality Exchange (WQX) and make the data available to the public via the Water Quality Portal. While the webcast is open to anyone, the focus of this webcast will be on simple methods smaller organizations can use to transfer their water quality data into WQX Web. WQX Web provides a framework for users with small data sets to share water quality monitoring data over the Internet.

WQX Web is a web-based data entry tool that enables data owners to upload their data to EPA's STORET Data Warehouse using a MS Excel spreadsheet. Once the data are in STORET, they can be stored and can be viewed and downloaded by a wide variety of potential data users. The webcast will help water quality program managers, data managers, and others understand WQX, how it relates to STORET and the Water Quality Portal, and how to begin submitting data using WQX Web. For more information on WQX/STORET, visit For more information on the Water Quality Portal, visit To register for this March 13 webinar, please use the link below. The webcast presentation will be posted in advance at the same url. Webcast participants are eligible to receive a certificate for their attendance.
