Program Info

Water quality data repository This is not a monitoring program but a database of data from monitoring programs. EPA's repository of the water quality monitoring data collected by water resource management groups across the country. Includes water quality, chemical parameter measurements made in the field or lab, physical parameter measurements such as water temperature or pH, biological sampling results, and habitat assessments or observations.
Parameters vary depending on the program, but can include: Alkalinity (mg/L, ueq/L), aluminum (mg/L), ammonia-nitrogen as N (mg/L, ueq/L), ammonium (mg/L, ueq/L), anion deficit (ueq/L), apparent color (pt), arsenic (mg/L, ug/L), barium (mg/L), beryllium (mg/L), bicarbonate (ueq/L), bromacil (ug/L), calcium (mg/L, ug/L, ueq/L), carbon (mg/L), carbonate (ueq/L), chloride (mg/L, ueq/L), chlorophyll a (mg/L, ug/L), conductivity (mS/cm, umho/cm, uS/cm), copper (mg/L, ug/L), depth (m), secchi depth (m), dissolved oxygen (mg/L, ppm), diuron (ug/L), enterococcus (cfu/100mL), fecal coliform (cfu/100mL), fluoride (mg/L), gran acid neutralizing capacity (ueq/L), hardness (Ca, Mg, carbonate; mg/L), hydrogen (ueq/L), hydroxide (ueq/L), inorganic carbon (mg/L), inorganic nitrogen (NO2 + NO3 and NH4; mg/L), ionic strength (m), iron (mg/L, ug/L), kjeldahl nitrogen (mg/L), lead (mg/L, ug/L), PAR (uE/m2/sec), light transmissivity (%), magnesium (mg/L, ueq/L), manganese (mg/L), mercury (mg/L, ug/L), nickel (mg/L), nitrate (mg/L, ueq/L), nitrite (mg/L), nitrogen (mg/L, ug/L), nutrient-nitrogen (mg/L), organic anions (ueq/L), organic carbon (mg/L), organic nitrogen (mg/L), organic phosphorus (mg/L), orthophosphate (mg/L, ug/L), pH, pheophytin a (mg/L, ug/L), phosphate (mg/L, ug/L), phosphorus (mg/L, ug/L), particulate organic phosphorus (mg/L), potassium (mg/L, ueq/L), salinity (ppt), selenium (ug/L), silica (mg/L, ug/L), silicate (mg/L), sodium (mg/L, ueq/L), specific conductance (umho/cm), sulfate (ueq/L), sum of anions (ueq/L), sum of cations (ueq/L), tannin and lignin (mg/L), temperature (deg.
