This wont be just quick reading by the way, lots of loopholes here,need to cross the information and compare. I will eventually get it laid out but just too much to find and put together all myself just three days ago now! I should have been a better writter or paid attention in english class better or better office skills!

The laboratories of the environmental science and engineering
program at Rice University have several wet labs for environmental
research and additional computational space. These labs are well
equipped for research in the areas of environmental microbiology,
molecular biology, organic pollutant analysis, colloid and nanoparticle
characterization, and atmospheric and water chemistry. In addition,
the modern facilities of the Rice Shared Equipment Authority are
available for research. A list of equipment shared can be found at
Rice University has a large nanotechnology community
with well-equipped surface analysis equipment available on a shared
basis. Major surface analysis instrumentation includes: FEI XL-30
Environmental Scanning Electron Microscope (ESEM), JEOL 2010

Canals, laterals and most all of the wetlands have not been assessed for the goals of the
Google earth Lake Thunderbird area, and east of here, lots of little dirt back roads, no names, all leading to lime green pools of water. That is why they dont count the extra man made lakes or require them to be monitored!!!
Finalized, signed, and U.S. EPA Region VI approved copies of the Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP) will be distributed to the following persons:

A9 DOCUMENTATION AND RECORDS
All project activities will be reported in the semi-annual progress reports to EPA. Other reports to be generated as part of the project are outlined in the workplan and include:
2) Final Report
As discussed in section A.6.2.5, the report will consist of summary tables for historical and supporting data, as well as summaries for the model assumptions, model calibration, model projections, and targeting results. The report will also include summaries for model input and output and plots of predicted and observed flow, sediment, and nutrient loads (when applicable).
Vieux & Associates, Inc. will be responsible for final electronic and hard copy documentation version control, updates, storage, tracking, and distribution. Because existing software will be used for all phases of this project, there is no need to develop

any new file types or protocols. While the project is ongoing, the GIS/Modeler will backup all electronic documentation and data on local hard drives.
At the end of the project, all documentation, data (GIS, water quality data, etc.), and SWAT model files will be archived on CDs. These CDs will be archived and stored by the OCC, and if requested will be provided to the USEPA Region VI.

Why did Baxter have to set a 10 year monitoring system on something already done? He dont even fully support his own 100 percent accurate!
QUALITY AND LIMITATIONS OF SWAT MODEL DATA
A4 PROJECT / TASK ORGANIZATION
The water quality data used in this report was collected by the Department, the
Conservation Commission, the Department of Wildlife Conservation, the Water Board, the
United States Geological Survey, the Corporation Commission, and citizens of the state.
The data used in this report came from the Toxics Monitoring Survey of Oklahoma
Reservoirs (OSDH, 1995), Nonpoint Source Pollution Assessment Report (Section 319(h))
(OCC, 1988, 1991), Clean Lakes Programs (Section 314) (OCC & OWRB), Lake Water
Quality Assessment Report (OCC & OWRB, 1994), statewide ambient trend monitoring
network, intensive and rapid bio-assessment surveys, fish and wildlife kill reports, spill
reports, citizen complaints, and citizens of the state
There are ten sites in
Oklahoma which are on the EPA National Priority List (NPL). The NPL ranks sites for
clean-up based on the actual or potential risks posed to human or the environment.
Additional pre-remedial and remedial activities at non-NPL sites are being addressed by
the Department’s Voluntary Cleanup Program (Brownfields). Refer to Table 7,
"Superfund, NPL, and Non-NPL Sites Impacting on Groundwater and Surface Water" for
a complete listing of the sites within Oklahoma.
Targeting critical source areas of pollutants from upland areas is an important component to implementing technical assistance and programs in areas that will potentially provide the greatest improvement in water quality with limited funds.
Personnel performing modeling for this task will be familiar with the requirements of this QAPP and will have previous experience in applying the SWAT model for targeting purposes. No special training or certifications are necessary for this modeling task.
No special hardware is necessary for the modeling in this task. The software to be used for the modeling is SWAT 2005 running under Microsoft Windows XP, which has been well tested and needs no modification for use in this project.
Validation is the process of verifying the ability of a calibrated model to make predictions
outside the calibration period. A portion of the available data is withheld during calibration and later used to validate the model. The SWAT model will not be validated unless sufficient data exist
Just read this! This the very brand new report! Mind you the state was funded Billions of dollars for worse results! EPA is the approving officer and yet you will find him in the project in reports submitted with the SWAT project.
Then this is the City of Norman Budget Reports:
