The purpose of this project is to expand the existing San Francisco Bay Regional Data Center (RDC) to include the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and Suisun Marsh (Delta). The anticipated outcome of this project is an estuary-wide data repository where one currently does not exist. The goals are to work with data providers collecting data in the Delta, harmonize data for improved interoperability, and increase access to, and exchange of, high-quality environmental data from public and private sector sources for scientists, environmental program staff, managers, the public and other stakeholders. The project phases include convening engaged workgroups and stakeholders to help set priorities for data collection, and prioritizing datasets that address water quality pollution in the Delta ecosystem and focus on nutrient enrichment and toxic contaminants in priority habitat restoration areas.

By contributing the collected data to the California Environmental Data Exchange Network (CEDEN) and in turn EPA’s Water Quality Exchange (WQX), the Bay-Delta Regional Data Center (RDC) will ensure broad dissemination of data to support the state’s mandated reforms to the Delta’s water resources and ecological management. An effort of the Delta Watershed Initiative Network (DWIN), this estuary-wide data repository presents an opportunity to provide accessible and synthesized data for scientists and decision-makers for comprehensive policy solutions and effective management. This project will leverage previous investments made to standardize and manage water quality data, and align resource-management and regulatory needs.

The following workgroup members meet regularly to help guide and prioritize the work performed under this project:

  • Shakoora Azimi-Gaylon, Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Conservancy
  • Jarma Bennett, State Water Resources Control Board
  • Matt Dekar, US Fish and Wildlife Service
  • Steve Goldman,  California Department of Fish & Wildlife
  • Cristina Grosso, San Francisco Estuary Institute/Aquatic Science Center
  • Aaron Haiman, Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Conservancy
  • Tony Hale, San Francisco Estuary Institute/Aquatic Science Center
  • Kathryn Kynett, Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Conservancy
  • Kris Jones, California Water Quality Monitoring Council
  • Sam Miller, California Department of Water Resources
  • Steve Slater, California Department of Fish & Wildlife, Interagency Ecological Program

Below is a list of datasets uploaded to the Bay-Delta Regional Data Center:

  • Cache Creek and Putah Creek water toxicity (1998-1999)
  • Cache Creek and Putah Creek water chemistry and field data (1998-1999)
  • Pelagic Organism Decline water chemistry and field data (2005)
  • Pelagic Organism Decline fish and invertebrate toxicity data (2005)
  • Pelagic Organism Decline water chemistry data (2006-2010)
  • Sacramento River Watershed Program water chemistry and fish data (1998-2007)
  • Sacramento River Watershed Program water toxicity data (2006-2007)

 

The project resulted in the uploading of 160 datasets across multiple analytes and test materials. You can find them on CD3. Each of the listed datasets are potentially associated with multiple analytes. To access them, you may map, chart, or download the raw data.
