The Environmental Protection Agency wants to move a database containing information
about injection wells from its National Computer Center in North Carolina to a new
database management system in Atlanta.
In a request for quotes last month, EPA called for a vendor to furnish the personnel,
services and equipment to migrate the files to an unnamed server and develop a DBMS that
can handle geographic information system applications. The vendor would also help
integrate the database with the EPA LAN in Atlanta and train EPA employees to run it, the
Information technology officials want to move the 15-year-old DBMS running on an IBM
mainframe to a new platform. The Underground Injection Control database is an inventory of
7,000 wells, their locations and related licensing, regulation and compliance data.
