Step 1: Prepare Your EDD
Environmental monitoring data must be submitted to MT-eWQX in a specific format. Data providers are required to download the MT-eWQX EDD and populate it with their project’s data. Detailed guidance for populating the MT-eWQX EDD can be found in the MT-eWQX Guidance Manual.
Step 2: Validate Your EDD
After Step 1 is complete, your MT-eWQX EDD is ready for data validation using the EQuIS Data Processor (EDP). The EDP is a standalone application that allows data providers to check their EDD files prior to submission to ensure they are formatted as described in the MT-eWQX Guidance Manual. If the EDP detects errors, the errors will be identified and most can be corrected directly within the EDP. After the errors are corrected, the EDP must be re-run to ensure that no errors remain. Your EDD must have a clean validation from the EDP prior to data submission to DEQ.
Information specific to using the EDP can be found within the EDP Guidance Manual, which will be published by November 1, 2009.
Step 3: Submit Your EDD
After Step 2 is complete and your EDD has no errors, you’re ready to submit your EDD to MT-eWQX. In order to submit an EDD, you must have an:
- EQuIS Enterprise user account,
- ePass Montana account,
- Completed MT-eWQX Data Submittal Form
- EDD and user certificate in a compressed file format (.zip) data package
Information about all the above requirements can be found within the MT-eWQX Guidance Manual.
