Compliance Monitoring Data Portal (CMDP)
The CMDP is an online reporting application that allows certified laboratories to report compliance monitoring data directly to the Drinking Water (DW) Program. This program is similar to the Electronic Data Reporting System (EDRS) that was constructed and maintained by the State of Alaska.
The DW Program intends to replace EDRS with CMDP by the end of 2018. Laboratories will transition from the pre-production to the production version of CMDP on an individual basis.
If you wish to access the “sandbox” version of CMDP (i.e., version containing generic test data) or have additional questions or concerns, please contact the DEC CMDP Helpdesk at email@example.com.
CMDP Reporting Options
The CMDP offers a number of options for reporting compliance data to the DW Program. Labs can use any of the following combination of methods to report data:
- Online Data Entry (Web Forms) — Labs can enter compliance data into online forms and submit data through the CMDP. Use of the Online Data Entry forms is documented in the CMDP User Manual (PDF) (beginning on page 46).
- Excel Templates — Labs can enter sample data into Excel worksheets and generate a properly formed XML file for upload into the CMDP. The Sample Results Template (XLS) can be downloaded directly from the CMDP.
- XML File Uploads — XML files can be generated by the lab and manually uploaded into the CMDP. Information related to the structure and requirements of the CMDP XML Schema is available in the CMDP Web Services Sampling XML Schema Definitions (PDF) .
- Web Services — XML files can be generated by the lab and be automatically uploaded into the CMDP using Web Services. Information related to the CMDP XML Schema and the use of Web Services is available in the CMDP Web Services Sampling XML Schema Definitions (PDF) and the CMDP-LIMS Interface Control Document (PDF).
