Survey of Water Providers
*Your entries are anonymous unless you choose to identify yourself in one of your entries*

If you have any knowledge about surface water quality monitoring by or for water providers in Texas and neighboring states, or the history of such efforts, this survey is for you. A water provider is defined here as any entity that supplies water for household consumption, agriculture, or industry, which depending on the location could be a public, private, non-governmental, or other authority, not restricted to utilities, districts, cities, companies, agencies, and boards.

These survey questions mainly pertain to surface water monitoring near water intakes, near diversions, or in the environment. Researchers at Baylor University want to understand the water quality data needs of water providers. We are interested to develop relationships with water providers and address these needs by providing data support including data management, analysis, visualization, and forecasting. We are interested to learn about and to support water quality data streams from water samples or instruments taken near the water source.

Any information you provide will help our learning process. Thank you!
