The Montana Department of Environmental Quality has rolled out its Montana EQuIS Water Quality Exchange — or MT-eWQX — a central repository for water quality monitoring data.

Montana’s Web page for MT-eWQX provides guidance for submitting water quality data to the database, such as physical, chemical, biological, and habitat data from a variety of projects across the state.

Data submitted to MT-eWQX is submitted to EPA’s National STORET Warehouse, fulfilling the STORET requirement of environmental monitoring projects funded by federal monies, such as 319 grants or 106 funds.
