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.
This inquiry application was developed during April of 2004 to provide access
to the information available through the Exchange. The inquiry application
provides access to data provided by the States of Idaho, Oregon, and Washington
through parameter and place-based searches. Additional data sources will be
incorporated into the Exchange as they become available.
