Tribal Water Quality Data Exchange

The Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission (NWIFC) is a consortium of twenty Indian tribes in western Washington whose role is to assist the tribes’ natural resource activities and to provide efficiencies that would not otherwise be realized by the tribes when working independently. As such, the NWIFC applied for and received an Exchange Network Grant to develop a “Super-Node” of sorts which would allow tribes to exchange ambient water quality (WQX) information amongst themselves as well as directly with the EPA or other partners.

The resulting system allows tribes to participate in a much greater level of data sharing than was previously available. The solution has helped to prove to some of the smaller partners that exchanging data on the Exchange Network does not require a complex or expensive system. 

Designed specifically to meet the needs of the commission and its member tribes, this powerful exchange solution allows data providers to package and supply data to identified partners utilizing a number of methods and techniques, depending on the provider’s technical environment, as well as being able to receive data back. All at a fraction of the cost it would take to deploy and test fully functional Nodes in all these locations.
