The information system currently in use for Department of Environmental Quality’s Water Quality
Planning Bureau for recording assessments and TMDL Tracking is known as WARD (Water Quality
Assessment, Reporting, and Documentation System). It is an Oracle application and database using Oracle
Forms & Reports on the Web Logic platform. Currently DEQ is using WARD 11g for development of
Forms and Reports, and the database is Oracle 12c.
The purpose of this project is to convert the WARD front-end from Oracle Forms and Reports to a .NET
front-end. The new .NET front-end needs to be a web application so that maintenance is centralized, and
users will not have to worry about updates. The conversion is for the front-end only. DEQ will continue to
use the Oracle database.
