STORET surface water stations in Leon County and vicinity

Data format: Shapefile

Coordinate system: Lambert Conformal Conic

Theme keywords: sample, quality, water, stream, lake, STORET

Abstract: Locations of STORET sampling stations in and near Leon County, FL. STORET(an acronym for STORage and RETrieval database) is the database for the storage of biological, chemical, and physical data for ground and surface waters. While the United States Environmental Protection Agency designed STORET as a national water quality database, Florida's STORET database design is dictated by a state regulation called the "Impaired Waters Rule" (Chapter 62-303, Florida Administrative Code). Further information on Florida STORET is available at: http://www.dep.state.fl.us/water/storet/.

FGDC and ESRI Metadata:

Metadata elements shown with blue text are defined in the Federal Geographic Data Committee's (FGDC) Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM).

Abstract:
Locations of STORET sampling stations in and near Leon County, FL.  STORET(an acronym for STORage and RETrieval database) is the database for the storage of biological, chemical, and physical data for ground and surface waters. While the United States Environmental Protection Agency designed STORET as a national water quality database, Florida's STORET database design is dictated by a state regulation called the "Impaired Waters Rule" (Chapter 62-303, Florida Administrative Code).  Further information on Florida STORET is available at:  http://www.dep.state.fl.us/water/storet/.

Purpose:
The state-maintained dataset is used by numerous agencies to track sampling locations in surface and ground waters and was implememented for the purpose of collecting data to satisfy the requirements of Chapter 62-303 F.A.C., the Impaired Water rule.  The subset of data extracted from the Florida DEP database and made available in this theme is intended for use by local agencies with surface water quality programs/projects in Leon County.

Attribute:
Attribute label: Latitude
*Attribute alias: LATITUDE
Attribute definition:
A latitude measurement indicates the angular distance (00 to 90 degrees) of a location north or south of the equator. North denotes a positive value for latitude, and south denotes a negative value. For example, the US has positive latitudes and Australia has negative latitudes. Latitude measurement is further specified by measuring the minutes (00 to 59 minutes) and seconds (00 to 59 seconds) of each degree. One degree of latitude equals 111.1 km or approximately 60 nautical miles.  Unknown accuracy: contact your regional STORET manager (http://www.dep.state.fl.us/water/storet/contacts.htm) for details on the accuracy of specific stations.

Attribute:
Attribute label: Longitude
*Attribute alias: LONGITUDE
Attribute definition:
A longitude measurement indicates the angular distance (0 to 180 degrees) of a location west or east of the prime meridian. The prime meridian is a measurement line that is drawn from pole to pole around the Earth, passing through Greenwich, England. East denotes positive values; west denotes negative values. For example, Australia has positive longitudes and the US has negative longitudes. Longitude measurement is further specified by measuring the minutes (00 to 59 minutes) and seconds (00 to 59 seconds) of each degree.  Unknown accuracy: contact your regional STORET manager (http://www.dep.state.fl.us/water/storet/contacts.htm) for details on the accuracy of specific stations.

Attribute:
Attribute label: Primary
*Attribute alias: PRIMARY
Attribute definition:
Type refers to the principle designation of the station (e.g., estuary, ocean, great lake, facility, etc.). Sometimes this primary station type can be further clarified. For example, if the primary type is facility, the secondary type must specify what type of facility the station is (e.g., Industrial, Municipal Sewage (POTW), Municipal Water Supply (PWS), etc.). Additionally, if the primary type is canal or wetlands, a secondary type must be specified. (See Secondary Station Type)
