STOrage and RETrieval and Water Quality Exchange Listserv

For the convenience and support of all STORET/ WQX Users, we have set up a listserv dedicated to Modernized STORET and its companion database, the STORET Legacy Data Center (LDC). Its name is STORETinfo.

A listserv is an Internet feature whereby one posts a message that is received via email by all listserv members. They can respond to you or to the entire listserv membership.

What kinds of things can you put on a listserv?

You can post just about anything related to STORET (Legacy or Modernized) and WQX. You can post:

  • Questions
  • Opinions
  • Announcements
  • Requests
  • Things to share

How do you join the listserv?

Manage your subscription via the web

The biggest change in the new management server is the ability to access STORETINFO via the web. This means that through the use of a web browser you can read messages, look through old messages, and change preferences about your subscription status.

You may manage your listserv subscription to STORETinfo by linking to EPA Mailing Lists.

For help on using the listserv web interface, contact Lyris.

Who's on it now?

The number of subscribers to the listserv as of October 2005 is around 480. Others are welcome to join by using the technique discussed above.

How does one post a message?

 How does one post a message? - Messages are sent by email and you must be subscribed to the listserver in order to post.  Send the message to be posted to, and it will automatically be sent out as an email message to every member of the STORETinfo listserver.

Happy Communicating!
