Various research activities conducted by the Drinking Water Research Division of the U.S. EPA have resulted in the generation of extensive measurement data pertaining to water quality. The data is useful for investigating the performance and cost of drinking water treatment process systems. In order to perform multiple and/or extensive evaluations of this data, it was necessary to develop a computer based information retrieval system that would provide a consistent input data format and the capability to manage, access and report required information. The computer software resulting from this effort has provided DWRD with an effective method for analyzing large amounts of field-scale research data and providing ideas to upgrade water quality.
