Description:
Abstract:
Water Discharge locations. The dataset contains locations and attributes of Water Discharges, created as part of the DC Geographic Information System (DC GIS) for the D.C. Office of the Chief Technology Officer (OCTO) and participating D.C. government agencies.
A database provided by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) identified Water Discharge locations. All DC GIS data is stored and exported in Maryland State Plane coordinates NAD 83 meters.
METADATA CONTENT IS IN PROCESS OF VALIDATION AND SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
Purpose:
This data is used for the planning and management of Washington, D.C. by local government agencies.
Supplemental_Information:
The Permit Compliance System (PCS) provides information on companies which have been issued permits to discharge waste water into rivers. You can review information on when a permit was issued and expires, how much the company is permitted to discharge, and the actual monitoring data showing what the company has discharged. The Water Discharge Permits Query allows you to retrieve preselected data from the PCS database in Envirofacts. You can narrow your search by selecting various options including facility name, geographic location, standard industrial classification, and chemicals. You may also use the PCS Customized Query to retrieve data and design a query for your particular needs, using any data element available from the Envirofacts Warehouse. Customized Queries are primarily geared toward more experienced users. There is also information on related laws and regulations.

Process_Description:
Accessed Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) data using ArcMap and connecting to the agency's GIS Server: <http://geodata.epa.gov>. This GIS Feature Server connects to the EPA's Envirofacts database.
It was a matter of selecting and exporting the area of interest, Washington DC plus a 500 meter buffer surrounding the border.
It was necessary to reproject the data to DC GIS Standards: Maryland Stateplane NAD 83
Once the data was obtained, lengthy research was done on the EPA site to find metadata. The Feature Server did not provide metadata.
