Largest water quality monitoring facility in North America: US EPA
The biggest water monitoring facility outside of the US is in North Carolina, the Environmental Protection Agency announced today.
The EPA says that in the past year, the agency has monitored the water quality of the region’s rivers and streams from 1,000 feet above ground to more than 100 miles below ground.
The agency says that since 2014, it has monitored water quality in a total of 1,039 square miles.
The monitoring is part of an initiative called Water Quality Monitoring Program (WQMP).
The program, announced in 2016, aims to provide a single, reliable source of data for the state, county, and municipal water systems.
The first site for WQMP is a water quality facility at a former steel mill in the small town of Woodstock.
The facility, called the Watershed Monitoring Station, was opened in 2015 to begin monitoring the water flow and quality of streams in the watershed.
WQAMP currently monitors water quality near the river in North Conway, North Carolina.
This week, the EPA announced that it will move forward with construction of a second monitoring site in the same area.
Wawona, West Virginia, is also looking to expand its water monitoring program, and the EPA says it is considering opening up a second site for water quality testing.
This comes after a similar project was approved by the EPA in 2016.
“This partnership with the Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Department of Natural Resources, which provides water quality data and analysis services to the public, is a win-win for water users and businesses,” EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy said in a statement.
“As we continue to work together to improve our nation’s water quality, we can all agree that water quality is our number one priority.”
The EPA has said it is looking for a water management system that will capture and analyze the data from all water systems in the region.
This is not the first time that the agency is looking to improve its water quality information.
In 2015, the Trump administration put forward a proposal that called for the establishment of a water monitoring and monitoring data collection system.
A 2015 study by the agency found that the water monitoring system could potentially capture a significant amount of data.
The study found that there were “significant uncertainties” in the data collected by the system and could result in inaccurate data.
