New EDD Format Memo (July 2020) July 20, 2020 To: Solid Waste Facility Owners and Operators/ SW Directors/County Managers/Consultants/Laboratories From: NC DEQ-DWM, Solid Waste Section Re: New Electronic Data Deliverable (EDD) Format The North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality (Department) has procured an environmental data management system to streamline the submittal, organization, and presentation of environmental data collected across the state. The Department has adopted a standardized Electronic Data Deliverable (EDD) format across all its divisions to regiment how data is transmitted to the Department in order to achieve the above objectives, as well as to better facilitate data review and decision making. Since all divisions will be using the same EDD format, this should also ease the burden of reporting on facilities, laboratories, and environmental consultants. The Division of Waste Management’s Solid Waste Section (Section) is requiring that all solid waste facilities begin submitting environmental data using the new EDD format on or before July 1, 2021. While the EDD format has changed slightly from the existing EDD employed by the Section in the past, the information being requested, and the Excel format being used, remains similar. The new EDD, along with comprehensive guidance documents can be obtained on the Solid Waste Section’s Environmental Monitoring Webpage. To assist facilities in gravitating to this new reporting condition, the Section also intends to hold training sessions, which will be posted on the website at a later date. To maintain the integrity of the Department’s environmental data management system, it is critical that facilities, consultants, and laboratories work with their Solid Waste Section contacts to ensure that environmental data and the associated new EDD format is being used and transferred in an accurate manner. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
