Introduction


Welcome to the Pacific Northwest Water Quality Data Exchange!

The Pacific Northwest Water Quality Data Exchange (Exchange) comprises a number of related information management projects that collectively seek to facilitate the aggregation of and access to a comprehensive source of data related to water quality in the Pacific Northwest. The project is supported by funds allocated from the EPA Network Challenge Grant program, and with these projects, the States are applying the concepts embodied in the National Environmental Information Exchange Network.

For more information regarding the Exchange, please visit the Pacific Northwest Water Quality Data Exchange project website.
