Abstract
The Drinking Water Research Division of the Risk Reduction Engineering Laboratory in Cincinnati, Ohio is responsible for conducting field scale research projects on the cost and performance of drinking water treatment technology in support of the Safe Drinking Water Act. To ensure project integrity (prevent garbage in/garbage out); the data base manager should be an integral part of the project design from the beginning. Failure to use data base management techniques can lead to a variety of problems. Such problem areas include: extensive data re-entry, data entry error, duplicate or missing records, and difficulty of data analysis. The purpose of the paper is to highlight these problem areas and methods to ameliorate them. Case study control data entry and analysis to ensure relevant project results. Suggestions are also provided to improve future projects.
