SFEI will leverage its experience as a Regional Data Center for CEDEN to deliver a scientifically sound data management strategy and plan for the Habematolel Pomo of Upper Lake (HPUL) and the Lake County Watershed Protection District (District). The main tasks for Phase 1 include summarizing existing and water quality data currently being collected in Lake County, developing templates and guidance for uploading data, formatting and exchanging data with the California Environmental Data Exchange Network (CEDEN) and USEPA's Water Quality Exchange (WQX), and preparing user-friendly factsheets and Data Management Plan.

This work will facilitate greater availability, use, and analysis of the wealth of data produced by HPUL and the District. Once in SFEI's data center, CEDEN, and WQX, the data will serve a range of new purposes. As such, this work will position HPUL and the District for future opportunities.
