This data set was originally provided to personnel of the Indiana Geological and Water Survey (IGWS) by Indiana Department of Environmental Management, Office of Land Quality personnel on December 12, 2002. It has been subsequently updated on updated on October 8, 2013 and October 19, 2018.

The following is excerpted from the metadata provided by IDEM, OWQ:

"The State of Indiana's efforts to control the direct discharge of pollutants to waters of the State were inaugurated by the passage of the Stream Pollution Control Law of 1943. The vehicle currently used to control direct discharges to waters of the State is the NPDES (National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System) Permit Program. This was made possible by the passage of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act Amendments of 1972 (also referred to as the Clean Water Act). NPDES permits place limits on the amount of pollutants that may be discharged to waters of the State by each discharger. These discharge limits are set at levels protective of both the aquatic life in the waters which receive the discharge and protective of human health."

Description:
Abstract:
NPDES_PIPE_IDEM_IN.SHP contains 5,027 outfall/discharge locations from permitted-wastewater facilities in Indiana that are overseen by IDEM through the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permitting Program. Indiana Department of Environmental Management, Office of Water Quality (IDEM, OWQ) personnel provided these upated data on October 19, 2018, as an Esri point shapefile named "IDEM_NPDES_ICIS_OUTFALLS.SHP." Attributes include facility name, NPDES permit status and information, identification numbers (IDEM), state water bodies affected, and general comments.

NOTE: NPDES_PIPE_IDEM_IN.SHP contains many attribute records that do not contain location and coordinate system information. There are a total of 5,027 attribute records provided in this data layer. Of those, a total of 4,492 records contain locational information and are displayed in a spatial map view. The remaining 535 records have been retained in the attribute table to aid users of these data in performing environmental accessments in the state of Indiana.

The following is excerpted from the metadata provided by IDEM, OWQ:

"The purpose of the NPDES permit is to control the point source discharge of pollutants into the waters of the State such that the quality of the water of the State is maintained in accordance with the standards contained in 327 IAC 2. The NPDES permit requirements must ensure that, at a minimum, any new or existing point source must comply with technology-based treatment requirements that are contained in 327 IAC 5-5-2. According to 327 IAC 5-2-2, 'Any discharge of pollutants into waters of the State as a point source discharge, except for exclusions made in 327 IAC 5-2-4, is prohibited unless in conformity with a valid NPDES permit obtained prior to discharge.' This is the most basic principal of the NPDES permit program."

Purpose:
This data set was developed to provide accurate coordinate information for employees and customers of the Indiana Department of Environmental Management to conduct environmental assessments and to obtain locations and contact information for permitted and regulated wastewater facilities in Indiana.

The following is excerpted from the metadata provided by IDEM, OWQ:

"The data set provides an important map layer for the Indiana Department of Environmental Management staff in conducting environmental assessments as well as a direct source or contact and mailing information. Although the database record set depicts all available information on regulated wastewater discharge sites as of the date of extraction, the locational and coordinate information is not complete, therefore queries and other searches are best handled through the attribute tables rather than from visually on maps where not all sites are represented."

Supplemental_Information:
The following is excerpted from the metadata provided by IDEM, OWQ:

"The primary block of data centers on state regulated Wastewater facility permits discharging into surface water bodies under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System program, but does include many 'Rule 6' stormwater permits. Treatment plant records for which there are locational coordinates have mostly been collected using 5 meter mapping grade GPS field units. Other locational coordinates have been either map interpolated from USGS 1:24,000 topographical quadrangle maps or were provided as unverified numeric information by teh regulated facility or it's representative. Locations for the stormwater permits were provided by the facility and have not been verified."

"This database is extracted from the national EPA Integrated Compliance Information System (ICIS) database and includes all available records listed in Indiana associated with "Active" surface water discharges. It consists of primarily of state permitted and regulated wastewater facility related information. The files are point locations and are projected into a UTM NAD83 zone 16 North coordinate system. Facility name, contacts, and a variety of mailing addresses are included for each permit along with locational data as available. Additionally, records for Stormwater permits under Rule 6, stormwater associated with industrial activities, have been appended into the tables."

Process_Description:
Field inspectors were trained in the use of Trimble Inc. GeoExplorer 2 hand-held mapping grade GPS equipment by an in-house trainer to ensure consistancy in data collection and processing techniques. All units use a standardized Data Dictionary (feature attribute tables) to collect coordinates during routine inspection trips. Field files are then sent to the office for post-processing by one individual and incorporated into MicroSoft Access data tables.

MS Access database tables composed of individual GPS records for point locations associated with NPDES permitted facilities and outfalls are checked for proper ID values matching known permits, any edit changes to data records are made, and then coordinate values in degrees, minutes, seconds are calculated. Records are evaluated to see if they meet the requirements for input into the EPA mainframe system.

IGS personnel received an ESRI point shapefile named A-NPDES-PIPE from IDEM personnel on December 12, 2002. A-NPDES-PIPE was loaded into ESRI ArcView 3.3 and the following columns were deleted from the associated attribute table: PIPE_ACTIV, PNORTHING, PLAT_D, PLAT_M, PLAT_S, PLAT_DS, PEASTING, PLON_D, PLON_M, PLON_S, PLON_DS, PLL_METHOD, PLAT_DD, PLON_DD, LGNDSORT, LGNDPTYPEM, NORTHING, EASTING, POS, STND_DEV, and HORIZ_PREC. The shapefile was also visually checked to insure that all data points provided actually fell within the accepted IGS state boundary.

NOTE: 2781 points were deleted from the A-NPDES-PIPE.DBF because there were no associated UTM values represented in the shapefile. IGS personnel then saved the edited shapefile as NPDES_PIPE_IDEM_IN.

It should also be noted that portions of the associated metadata provided by IDEM for A-NPDES-PIPE was extracted and included in this metadata file.

IGS personnel received an updated Esri point shapefile named "IDEM_ICIS_NPDES_OUTFALLS.SHP" from IDEM personnel (Miranda Hancock) on October 19, 2018. IDEM_ICIS_NPDES_OUTFALLS.SHP was re-projected using ESRI ArcCatalog 10.6 from geographic coordinates (World WGS 1984) to projected coordinates (UTM Zone 16 NAD83), and then renamed "NPDES_PIPE_IDEM_IN.SHP" to conform to internal naming conventions of the IGWS.

NPDES_PIPE_IDEM_IN.SHP was then loaded into Esri ArcMap, along with to the most recent version of the previously published data (20131008). The layers were visually compared to record any significant changes to the structure of the attribute table, fields, or values, as well as to the changes in the total number of records provided. The following attribute fields were deleted from the associated attribute table: HORIZONT_1 and GEOMETRIC_. A total of 5,027 NPDES outfall locations are included with this update, (the last update from 20131008 contained 10,187 outfall locations for NPDES facilities).

NOTE: There are a total of 5,027 attribute records provided in this data layer. Of those, a total of only 4,492 records contain locational information and are displayed in a spatial map view. The remaining 535 records have been retained in the attribute table.
