Data File Format
Please review the submittal instructions throughout the report form as they have changed. The five data files being utilized (Facility, Wells, Params, Sampling, and GWdata) have been updated. Minor changes have been made to the databases including removal of some non-required information and updating some columns. The five database files must be submitted in xls or dbf format, with the ability for Ohio EPA to manipulate the files to add them to the statewide database. The data format of each file, along with an example, has been provided as part of the instructions. The report form includes required information necessary for Ohio EPA to perform data validation on the submitted data and to include it in our statewide database. To request previous years’ electronic files or for other annual report questions, please contact Katie Rader of DDAGW’s Central Office via phone (614-644-3128) or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
