The project demonstrated an interactive Federal/state water pollution control, enforcement, and information system, including interactive computer graphics as a method of output presentation. Two systems were interfaced: Michigan's Water Information System for Enforcement (WISE) and EPA's STORET system. The WISE system is used to alert enforcement personnel to problems through exception reporting, and to provide follow-up information on these problems. STORET is used as a storage and retrieval system for water quality and inventory information. As information enters WISE, certain inputs are coded for storage in STORET. The interface mechanism is a common numbering system. Because WISE is modular in design, it can be used in part or in total by other agencies. The demonstration indicated that careful consideration should be given to the information that will comprise the computer file. Administrative, procedural, and auditing techniques should be completely set down before proceeding with management's commitment to the system. Microfilm should be used when feasible, both as Computer Output Microfilm (COM) and in manual files. (Modified author abstract)
