EPA Releases How’s My Waterway Data Transparency Tool

June 18, 2020      Data Management, Drinking Water Headlines, Source Water     

Today (6/18), EPA released a new version of their How’s My Waterway online mapping application. How’s My Waterway draws from publicly available water quality data reported under Clean Water Act programs (305(b), 303(d), TMDL) to provide information to the community about the health of local waterways for swimming, aquatic life, and fish consumption. The updated How’s My Waterway incorporates additional information about public drinking water systems from the Safe Drinking Water Information System (SDWIS) and the Drinking Water Performance and Results Report (GPRA) to provide single point access to EPA water program data.

Created in partnership between EPA, states and water stakeholders, How’s My Waterway provides users with an easily accessible and understandable summary of water quality at the community, state, and national level.

  • Community: Learn about the health of local waters, identify challenges and learn about what’s being done to restore or protect the waters. Find out more about your drinking water. Discover if waters in your community are suitable for swimming or eating fish and if they support healthy aquatic life.
  • State: Choose a state to find basic facts about a state’s waters, summaries of specific water assessments, a statewide survey of water quality and state drinking water metrics.
  • National: Learn about the quality of water resources (lakes, rivers and streams, wetlands and coastal areas) across the nation and the main challenges to our water resources nationwide. You will also find information about national drinking water quality and national drinking water metrics.

Learn more about How’s My Waterway at https://mywaterway.epa.gov.

EPA and States Launch New SDWIS Modernization Board

April 1, 2020      Data Management, SDWIS Prime     

On January 31, 2020, U.S. EPA, the Environmental Council of the States (ECOS), and the Association of State Drinking Water Administrators (ASDWA) initiated the SDWIS Modernization Board (SMB). Formed following a series of discussions over several months, the Board will guide the SDWIS Modernization process, applying the principles of the E-Enterprise Digital Strategy. Benita Best-Wong, EPA Office of Water Deputy Assistant Administrator, and Victoria Phillips, Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection’s Enterprise Information Office Director, will co-chair the Board and ensure integrated participation from both State and EPA drinking water program and enterprise information management leaders. You can view the full Membership here and the SDWIS Modernization Board Charter.

The first phase of SMB activities will primarily focus on providing input to support an Alternatives Analysis. The high-level scope of the Alternatives Analysis will identify and assess options for a long-term replacement of SDWIS State that supports both Primacy Agency and EPA data management needs – including newly proposed requirements specified in the Lead and Copper Rule Revisions. The Alternatives Analysis is scheduled to be delivered at the end of June, with option selection in July.

The Board will continue to provide regular updates throughout the process.

If you have questions, or require access to ASDWA’s SDWIS User Community, please contact Anthony DeRosa of ASDWA.

CMDP and SDWIS Prime Contract Transition

EPA’s current contract with Attain for the Compliance Monitoring Data Portal (CMDP) and SDWIS Prime support is expiring over the next few months. Since late January, EPA has been transitioning  Development, Operations, and Maintenance support for CMDP and the Data Synchronization Engine (DSE), and from Attain, LLC to Systalex Corporation. SDWIS Prime is also being transitioned to Systalex, with Systalex serving as custodian of SDWIS Prime until after the SDWIS Modernization Alternatives Analysis is completed and decisions are made regarding the path forward for SDWIS Modernization. Currently, Systalex provides contractual support to several EPA programs, and specifically support the Drinking Water Protection Division on existing programs and services (SDWIS State, SDWIS FedRep, SDWIS Production Control, SDWIS User Support, SDWIS Fed Data Warehouse and SDWIS Fed Reporting Services).

Over the past couple of weeks, EPA has moved the CMDP lead contract support role from Attain to Systalex, with Attain now focused on providing remaining transition support. EPA expects the contract transition to be completed approximately over the next  month. During this period, with most contractor resources dedicated to supporting the transition, the availability of technical support will be significantly reduced, impacting the following:

  • For CMDP Production Primacy Agencies – during the contract transition period, EPA is continuing to provide O&M support on critical issues. Non-critical problem tickets and enhancement requests will be deprioritized.
  • For CMDP Pre-production Primacy Agencies – during the remaining contract transition period, there will continue to be reduced technical resource availability to support CMDP and DSE testing. After the contract transition is complete, EPA plans to resume technical support to previous levels to support Primacy Agencies interested in CMDP adoption.
  • EPA is continuing to monitor the CMDP Help Centerduring this contract transition period; however, only critical requests are being addressed. Non-critical problem tickets and enhancement requests are deprioritized during this time.

SDWIS Prime Data Model and Business Rules Engine (BRE) Technical Assessment

Last September, EPA initiated an analysis task to investigate the Prime data model issues, as well as the reusability of the Business Rules Engine (BRE). GDIT completed this analysis under an EPA Office of Mission Support contract. The SDWIS Prime Data Model & Business Rules Engine Analysis report provides additional technical details on the data model issues that we referenced last summer. The analysis also provides recommendations to EPA on options to consider for reconciling discrepancies between the SDWIS/State and SDWIS Prime data models. Please keep in mind that this technical assessment focused only on the SDWIS Prime data model and the BRE.

SDWIS Modernization Board

In January, the SDWIS Modernization Board [formerly referred to as the SDWIS Governance Board] was formed following a series of discussions between ASDWA, EPA’s SDWIS team, and the E-Enterprise Leadership Council. The Board, co-chaired by Benita Best-Wong, EPA Office of Water Deputy Assistant Administrator and by Victoria Phillips, Enterprise Information Office Director of the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, includes representatives from state and EPA drinking water programs and enterprise information management leaders.

The Board will provide subject matter expertise in support of EPA’s Alternative’s Analysis. The high-level scope of the analysis is to identify and assess options for the long-term replacement of SDWIS State that supports the data management needs of both primacy agencies and EPA.

A formal communication about the Modernization Board’s activities will be shared with the broader community soon.

EN Grant Announcement and Supporting Webinars

The FY 2020 National Environmental Information Exchange Network Grant Program Solicitation Notice is now available at https://www.epa.gov/exchangenetwork/fy-2020-exchange-network-grant-solicitation-notice.  Applications are due to EPA by 11:59 PM Eastern Time, Wednesday, March 25, 2020. 

The purpose of the Exchange Network (EN) assistance agreements is improved access to, and exchange of, high-quality environmental data from public and private sector sources. With this outcome in mind, an application’s project goals and outputs should align with and support one or more EN program priorities. Applicants are also highly encouraged to review the new FY20 Solicitation Notice in full, as updates have been made throughout the document.

In support of the FY 2020 Exchange Network (EN) Grant cycle, EPA will host four webinars to assist interested applicants. The webinars will take place on February 24, February 26, March 6, and March 17. Each webinar will include the same presentation on the following topics: a brief overview of the EN Grants Program and FY 2020 timeline, critical elements of the Solicitation Notice, notable changes from FY 2019, an overview of new guidance materials and optional templates, and common mistakes to avoid.

SDWIS BPA New Task Order Requests

The SDWIS Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) is coming into its final year and will be ending on February 3, 2021.  This time frame is not enough to establish a new BPA call order due to the task order establishment process taking 6-8 months. EPA is currently unable to accept any new BPA call order requests and will continue to assist the existing BPA task orders during this final BPA year. EPA is working on a follow-on contract vehicle for Primacy Agencies to utilize in procuring support related to using CMDP and SDWIS Modernization efforts. EPA hopes to have the new vehicle in place for the last quarter of 2020.

If there are any questions on the SDWIS BPA, please contact Trang Le at le.trang@epa.gov, 202-564-1572.

Data Management/SDWIS Communications – Staying in the Loop (reminders)

Lastly, a quick review of the opportunities that exist to stay up to date on data management and SDWIS issues:

  • Email – critical information will continue to be sent directly to community members to ensure all impacted parties receive important communications. Please contact Anthony DeRosa if you are not receiving data-focused emails from ASDWA.

EPA Publishes Exchange Network Grant Solicitation Notice – With New Applicant Guidance Tools

February 10, 2020      Data Management, SDWIS Prime     

The FY 2020 National Environmental Information Exchange Network Grant Program Solicitation Notice is now available at https://www.epa.gov/exchangenetwork/fy-2020-exchange-network-grant-solicitation-notice.  Applications are due to EPA by 11:59 PM Eastern Time, Wednesday, March 25, 2020. Information on stakeholder webinars will be provided shortly.

The primary outcome expected from Exchange Network (EN) assistance agreements is improved access to, and exchange of, high-quality environmental data from public and private sector sources. With this outcome in mind, an application’s project goals and outputs should align with and support one or more EN program priorities. Applicants are also highly encouraged to review the new FY20 Solicitation Notice in full, as updates have been made throughout the document. Applicants should also note that optional templates for the cover letter, project narrative, and budget narrative have been provided in the appendices.

In FY 2020, EPA expects to award over $8 million for 20-30 assistance agreements for EN projects. Most awards will be in the $50,000 to $300,000 range. Awards for an individual assistance agreements cannot exceed $200,000. EPA may make a limited number of awards to qualifying collaborative, partnership assistance agreements, with project budgets of $400,000 or less. The exact number of assistance agreements will depend on the final amount of EPA’s appropriation for the EN grant program, the number of applications submitted to EPA by the application deadline, the budget amounts requested, and the outcome of application reviews.

EPA only accepts project proposals for EN assistance agreements submitted electronically through Grants.gov, unless applicants have a waiver. EPA anticipates that it will announce selection decisions in or around August 2020, and tentatively plans to issue awards by September 30, 2020.

For more information, please contact Erika Beasley, EN Grants Program Manager at beasley.erika@epa.gov.


Enforcement Targeting Tool Assistant (ETTA) Training Webinars

January 31, 2020      Data Management, Events, SDWIS Prime, Webinars     

Region 6 will host Enforcement Targeting Tool Assistant (ETTA) training in February 2020 for EPA staff and primacy agencies involved in implementing the National Primary Drinking Water Regulations. ETTA can be used by both EPA and primacy agencies to identify data discrepancies (state and Federal) in the Safe Drinking Water Information System (SDWIS), eliminate the data lag between the two databases when installed to run real-time data from the primacy agency’s SDWIS data, and help identify and address violations so that facilities can be returned to compliance or linked to a formal enforcement actions, along with some newly developed features.

The training will be offered on three different dates (see attached): February 3rd, 1:00-3:00 pm CST; February 6th, 2:00-4:00 pm CST; and February 13th, 9:00-11:00 am CST. The webinar will also be recorded and available on the SharePoint site following the conclusion of the training series. Attendees (both internal and external) will be able to access the needed materials and user guides through the SharePoint site closer to the training date through an email invitation. The registration links are below.

SDWIS PROJECT UPDATE: September 2019

September 19, 2019      Data Management, SDWIS Prime     

It’s been a while since our last project update, and it’s safe to say a lot happened in that short time. We’ve much to cover, so let’s jump into it…

Quick Announcements

  1. Security Vulnerability Notice for SDWIS/State Users – EPA released a security vulnerability advisory notice for SDWIS/State that provides information on a potential issue associated with user authentication. Read the advisory here.
  2. The September All Things SDWIS webinar has been rescheduled for October 3rd from 3-4PM ET. Reminders and calendar event invitations have been updated with the new information.

The Great Prime Pause

Back in June, ASDWA informed our members that the EPA SDWIS Prime Team identified an issue with the SDWS Prime/CMDP database that would require a system evaluation and fixes that led to an Agency decision to pause development of SDWIS Prime. EPA is currently undergoing their internal assessment, and we expect it will be some time before we hear about potential options for a path forward.

In the meantime, if you would like to learn more about the technical details of what’s known, EPA shared documentation last month on the initial analysis and assessment here. Below, you’ll find additional resources that go into detail about the issue and interim plans.

As part of their efforts to promote transparency throughout this process, EPA initiated a new thread on ASDWA’s SDWIS Forums to centralize discussion on the analysis artifacts shared and to answer any questions from the SDWIS Community. Please contact Anthony DeRosa of ASDWA for access.

Additional resources:

  • DMUC 19: Opening Session – this video capture from the Data Management Users Conference includes remarks from Anita Thompkins, EPA (at minute-mark 14:00) speaking directly to the issues with Prime and the Agency’s response.
  • DMUC 19: SDWIS Prime Project Update – this session focuses specifically on the Prime Project and includes remarks from Michael Plastino, Renee Morris, and Tina Chen of EPA’s Infrastructure Branch along with audience Q&A.
  • All Things SDWIS: August 2019 – the August All Things SDWIS call includes information on Prime, SDWIS/State 3.4 development plans, and additional information about CMDP.

SDWIS 3.4

With SDWIS Prime on hold, EPA is dedicating resources to address critical security vulnerabilities affecting SDWIS/State to ensure this core suite of software continues to serve states’ needs.. The following document details the scope of the upgrades and roll-out timelines:

https://www.asdwa.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/SDWIS-State-3.4-Development-Roll-Out-Plans_8_20_2019-1.docx

Again, EPA initiated a discussion thread on ASDWA’s SDWIS Legacy Forums to respond to questions and collect feedback from states on the Plan. Another discussion thread shares additional information on issues and fixes proposed for SDWIS/State by users outside the scope of the planned upgrades.

Additional resources:

  • DMUC 19: SDWIS Legacy Session – this video capture from the Data Management Users Conference opens with Renee Morris of EPA’s Infrastructure Branch walking through the plans for SDWIS/State 3.4.
  • All Things SDWIS: August 2019 – the August All Things SDWIS call includes information on SDWIS/State 3.4 development plans and roll-out strategy.

Compliance Monitoring Data Portal (CMDP)

Again, resources freed up with SDWIS modernization on hold have allowed for greater focus on CDMP development and implementation support. At the time of this writing, EPA has shared with the SDWIS Community a strategy to prioritize CMDP development and communications through January 2020. The strategy focuses on:

  • Addressing Technical Debt
  • Improvements to the User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX)
  • Improved Samples Validation
  • Sample Retraction
  • Monthly Operating Reports

On the communications front, EPA released a new Service Level Agreement (SLA) for the CMDP Help Center. The SLA, posted to ASDWA’s SDWIS User Community, outlines standard response times for processing tickets and the process for escalating support.

You may review the details of the strategy here.

ASDWA has configured a CMDP Forum for peer-to-peer support. Of note is a post last month from North Carolina seeking to centralize state requests for CMDP functionality and fixes. States with interest can view NC’s list and add to it here.

ASDWA/EPA Data Management Users Conference: 2019

We held a very successful DMUC in Atlanta, GA, with 168 onsite participants and an additional 130 attendees participating remotely via webinar. All of the videos and summary materials from the Conference are available in the SDWIS User Community of ASDWA.org. Some take-aways:

  • SDWIS PRIME
    • States appreciated the communications on the project at all levels, even if some want more details. EPA did a fine job of informing the community of what is known and what next steps to expect.
    • Most states seem interested in some level of forensic analysis of the Prime issues. With respect to the resources states have invested in the project over the years, it makes sense to continue moving forward as partners in this effort – which means, sharing essential findings that may inform future actions and decision-making with the understanding that EPA may be unable to share certain information. EPA has conveyed that they will be conducting a lessons learned assessment.
    • We have some application developers with experience building state-apps, including applications built on SDWIS, but none of these individuals are involved in any of our governance, workgroups, or committees. It would be beneficial to assemble these contacts into a “Technical Advisory Committee” of sorts. It might not be a standing committee but perhaps assembled based on need, or a workgroup managed under the Data Management Advisory Committee (DMAC).
    • Several state comments focused on exploring the future of Prime as an open-source project, although the nuance of such a suggestion requires far more consideration.
  • SDWIS Legacy
    Some states expressed confusion over the scope of the work planned for SDWIS/State. A fact sheet that specifically outlines the scope and timelines is now available to the community.
  • CMDP
    States requested a “one-stop-shop” for CMDP. We have some excellent information on the ASDWA website but could expand it considerably to include a development roadmap, changelogs/release notes, FAQs, helpdesk database, training options, and peer-to-peer resources. A future effort should review existing materials/videos to delete outdated information and promote helpful info/vids.
  • EN GRANTS
    Some states have outstanding Exchange Network Grants, specific to Prime, that now seem in limbo. EPA has conveyed that if states have questions regarding their EN Grant, they should consult with the EPA Regional EN Grant Coordinator. Justin Wright is the EPA SDWIS Team POC for any SDWIS Team input that may be helpful in states’ communications with Regional EN Grant Coordinators.
  • TRACKING UNREGULATED COMPOUNDS
    Some states expressed concerns over data management for unregulated contaminants.

Data Management Advisory Committee (DMAC)

As part of their quarterly Best Practices webinar series, the DMAC recently held a training for tracking Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) compliance in SDWIS/State 3.3. The training, led by Dianna Heaberlin of SAIC, can be viewed on the SDWIS Community Video section of ASDWA.org here.

Data Management/SDWIS Communications – Staying in the Loop (reminders)

Lastly, a quick review of the opportunities that exist to stay up to date on data management and SDWIS issues:

  • Email – critical information will continue to be sent directly to community members to ensure all impacted parties receive important communications. Please contact Anthony DeRosa if you are not receiving data-focused emails.
  • Newsfeed – ASDWA maintains a news feed dedicated to data management and SDWIS. You can track the feed via RSS at https://www.asdwa.org/category/data-management/sdwis-prime/feed/ or as part of your subscription to the ASDWA Update.
  • ASDWA website and discussion forums – all community members can request access to the SDWIS User Community and associated discussion forums. If you are not a member, please contact Anthony DeRosa for access.


SDWIS Prime and CMDP Update 8/21/2019

August 21, 2019      Data Management, SDWIS Prime   , ,   

Hi all,

We want to provide an update to everyone since our last post on Prime access from July 19th.

Access to SDWIS Prime will continue to be unavailable until a path forward on the SDWIS Modernization Project is determined. During this time, you will not be able to access SDWIS Prime for further exploration and the SDWIS Prime team will not approve any new user requests for SDWIS Prime access. We will notify everyone when access to SDWIS Prime is restored. Currently, we do not have an estimated time frame for restoration.

Access to the Compliance Monitoring Data Portal (CMDP) is not affected. We recently deployed CY19 Release 2 on August 9th and are preparing to deploy CY19 Release 3. We will be sharing more details on these releases and providing demonstrations tomorrow during the “All Things SDWIS” call at 3pm ET. If you haven’t done so, you may register for the All Things SDWIS series here: https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/1766811131259847692
