WaterSTAR features include: 

  • An interactive map to allow users to quickly identify pertinent results and identify spatial patterns
  • Graphs to identify trends for individual wells or groups of wells (example: nitrates)
  • Ability to make comparisons of analyte concentrations to MCL to identify areas in need of increased management
  • Analytical results that can be uploaded electronically through either a user interface or bulk upload template. Data QA/QC can be handled by both automatic validation and review/approval by agency staff
  • WaterSTAR can accept and provide data to other databases such as EPA SDWIS (Safe Drinking Water Information System) and the USGS NGWMN (National Ground Water Monitoring Network)

All of these features are designed increase staff efficiency for agencies.
