Description:
Abstract:
The North Carolina Department of Environment
and Natural Resources, Division of Water Quality, in
cooperation with the NC Center for Geographic Information
and Analysis, developed the digital GIS Discharger Coalitions'
Monitoring Sites data to help analyze the impact on water quality of the
discharges of the coalition's members. This data contains sites
from multiple coalitions that are monitored by the Division
of Water Quality (DWQ). Each coalition contains multiple
members for which they routinely collect water samples. Each member of
a coalition is a permitted National Pollutant Discharge Elimination
System discharger. This data identifies the point locations
of the sample sites.
Purpose:
This data was created to assist governmental agencies and others in making resource management decisions through use of a Geographic Information System.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
DWQ maintains the data in an internal SQL
database. The attributes are reviewed by DWQ staff as the data is used.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
Using ESRI's ARC/INFO GIS software, the data set was built for points using the "build" command.  Topology has not been edited since the last build or clean.
Completeness_Report:
These data represent the locations and attributes of
all the current discharger coalition monitoring stations administered
by DWQ.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
DWQ received latitude and longitude values from participating dischargers and refined the locations using "Terrain Navigator" software which generates a latitude and longitude value at the cursor.
