Water Quality Data Exchange with EQuIS

One of the highest implementation priorities for New York DEC’s Brownfields initiative was the establishment of an Environmental Information Management System (EIMS) to provide an integrated repository for the various sources of surface and groundwater data. Significant business process and technical data migration challenges for the Department were addressed before moving from the pre-existing environment to EarthSoft Inc.’s “EQuIS 5” package. Windsor worked with the Department and with EarthSoft to design and develop the data migration and put in place new business processes to support the new environment.

Also included in the migration to EQuIS 5 was the inclusion of a custom Vapor Intrusion module not previously incorporated in EQuIS 5. With EarthSoft, Windsor architected this module to enable the capture and storage of vapor intrusion data collected at Department monitoring locations.

In parallel with the EIMS implementation, Windsor helped DEC build upon their Exchange Network Node architecture through the establishment of an additional data flow. This flow provides an electronic feed of ambient water quality data from EQuIS to the EPA Water Quality Exchange (WQX) database utilizing the latest WQX 2.0 schema. The flow upgrade was necessitated by the EPA’s decision to no longer accept STORET submissions beginning January 2010.
