Future of STORET / WQX Outreach
During the spring and summer of 2006, The STORET/ WQX Team held a series of regional outreach meetings relating to the Future of STORET and WQX. The purpose of these meetings was to:
- Provide information on WQX
- Get feedback on the WQX Schema for physical, chemical and fish tissue data
- Discuss transition plans and impacts with the user community
Both STORET and non-STORET users were a part of these meetings.
These outreach meetings helped the STORET team finalize the WQX schema for chemical, physical and fish tissue data. From a draft version of the schema to the final version that was published in September 2006, these changes helped ensure that the schema would meet the needs of the WQX user community. Here is a list of the final schema changes (PDF 1.6 MB) that were implemented as a part of these meetings.
Below is a list of the meeting locations and dates, contact information for the regional STORET Coordinators who made these meetings possible, as well as the meeting minutes.
