Subject: National Water Quality Database
We encourage you to make use of the National Water Quality
Information Database to access information that will help those affected by
the floods and droughts occuring in different regions of the country.
The database includes nearly 2000 citations and 350 full-text
documents of Extension generated materials in use throughout the country. I
have searched the database on such words as "disinfection", "Emergency"
"Septic system failures", "floods", droughts", etc. and have found many
matches. The documents can be retreived by the user via e-mail.
To access the database from the Internet,
You login is: cerf
Your password is: purdue
Follow the computer directions for seraching. Commands are located on
the bottom of the screen.
To access the database from a modem, the phone number is:
Your user name is: cerf
Your password is: demo
From here follow the Internet directions.
Your only cost is the long-distance charge.
All documents are included in the Gopher server at Purdue Cooperative
If you have county or district staff who are unfamiliar with database
access, or do not have the capabilities at hand to search, please encourage
them to give me a call at (219) 854-2309, and I will search the database for
them and e-mail them all information that matches their search.
The Water Quality database is simple to use, and includes a wealth of
information to answer many of the questions that pertain to situations where
there is too much water, and not enough water.
Good luck to all of you as you work through these difficult times.
If we can help you in any way in getting this information, please do not
hesitate to give us a call.
