Description:
Abstract:
The coverage contains the locations of outfalls for facilities registered with the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) program. Under this program, established by Public Law 92-500, all facilities which discharge any pollutant from point sources to surface waters (directly) are required to obtain a federal permit from the US Environmental Protection Agency. The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) also issues a State Water Discharge Permit for most of these discharges.
Purpose:
The data set was originally developed to document the location of facilities which discharge pollutants directly to a surface water for the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES).

Use_Constraints:
User is required to read metadata completely before using the data. The information provided in this coverage is a subset of spatial databases developed by the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES). Development of these databases is an ongoing project; they may not contain all existing and potential sites, stations, or threats. The NHDES is not responsible for the use or interpretation of this information, or for any inaccuracies in the site names, tax map and lot information, or locations. All information is subject to verification. These data are to be used for planning purposes only; distribution is discouraged.

Data_Quality_Information:
Logical_Consistency_Report:
Periodically locations are checked for accuracy by comparing database town location versus coverage location. Checks are also made against other coverages of similar nature (such as other facility type coverages) which have facility overlap.
Completeness_Report:
Newer facilities are likely not shown in the dataset since they may not be located yet by GIS field staff. A facility may not be included in the coverage if it deactivated all its discharges before it could be located.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The majority of the features were located on USGS paper quadrangles using traditional field methods (i.e., map/compass); these features were digitized directly from the paper copies using the local 2 1/2-minute tics, thereby achieving an RMS of <0.003 in all cases. Other features were located by the US Environmental Protection Agency, Region New England, or NHDES using differentially-corrected GPS data; these features are flagged accordingly in the coverage point attribute table.

Ordering_Instructions:
Most coverages are available through ftp site (see Online Linkage). To address homeland security concerns, access to some of these data sets is available only to users who present a valid personal identification number (PIN) and password. These data sets have an access constraint set to Upon NHDES Approval. Users can apply for a PIN and password using the OneStop Data Retrieval Registration Form (<http://www.des.state.nh.us/gis/onestop/>). Applicants should be very specific when providing information on the registration form to enable NHDES personnel to determine their eligibility. For more information on what criteria is necessary to receive a PIN/password please visit <http://www.des.state.nh.us/factsheets/co/co-14.htm>. Once the applicant has been provided a PIN/Password, the applicant shall be the sole responsible party for the information they receive using the PIN/Password that has been issued to said party. The applicant shall be responsible for the accuracy of the information submitted in a request for a PIN and Password that will allow said applicant to access certain information held by the Department of Environmental Services. The applicant shall understand by submitting a registration form, said applicant shall be responsible for the PIN and Password they receive and for any and all information collected using the PIN and Password, and that NO LIABILITY IS INCURRED BY THE STATE by reason of providing the requested access.
