As an integral part of the National Eutrophication Survey, a program initiated in 1972 to investigate the threat of accelerated eutrophication to freshwater lakes and reservoirs, the Environmental Monitoring and Support Laboratory, Las Vegas, the collected water quality information from selected lakes throughout the contiguous United States. Water quality data are categorized and stored using a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency central computer-oriented system, STORET (STOrage and RETrieval). A need for raw data conversions in STORET to some other accessible form was recognized. A job control language package, 'STORET.TO.WYLBUR.' was written for conversion of raw data in STORET into a standardized format for statistical evaluation and manipulation of Survey data.
