In 1993, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) initiated design of the Water Resources Database (WRDB) to address the imposing data management challenges presented by the Chattahoochee River Modeling Project.  These challenges included a vast amount of data to be handled, a wide variety of data types to be accommodated, and a diversity of information sources each providing important data often in incompatible formats.  These circumstances were further complicated by factors like:  insufficient in-house expertise in the technical aspects of database design; a general lack of success with the effective use of existing national databases; and, the fact that expected WRDB users possessed an assortment of professional specialties and a variety of software skill levels.


As software development progressed, it soon became clear that the WRDB could easily serve a host of general data management needs beyond those of this particular modeling project.  Accordingly, the WRDB was recast as a general-purpose instrument for addressing a variety of everyday data management problems typically faced by environmental practitioners.  The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (Region IV) provided funds to support its development as a general-purpose.


This Web page was developed to introduce WRDB concepts (using mostly excerpts from the Users Manual) and provide a convenient location for downloading the latest version of the software and documentation. The software was developed by Dr. Lloyd Chris Wilson, P.E., of Clayton Engineering in St. Louis, Missouri. If you are not associated with Georgia EPD or Region IV EPA, please contact Dr. Wilson for information on software development and support options.
