Cortina Rancheria selects Locus Technologies’ EIM for its water quality and environmental management system software

The Locus EIM SaaS will streamline the Cortina Rancheria environmental monitoring program under U.S. EPA Clean Water Act

San Francisco, Calif., 1 November 2016 — Locus Technologies, a leader in environmental and compliance enterprise management software, announced today that the Cortina Rancheria Kletsel Dehe Band of Wintun Indians (Cortina Rancheria) has selected Locus EIM as its environmental information management system.

Cortina Rancheria is implementing the Locus EIM SaaS-based software to manage their environmental monitoring under the U.S. EPA Clean Water Act.  Locus EIM will enable the tribe to consolidate and better manage its field, water quality, and air monitoring data, with output reporting to the EPA WQX database.

Locus EIM is a comprehensive environmental data management system designed for the variety and complexity of environmental sampling and analysis. EIM has all the built-in tools necessary for any environmental media sampling event, and it includes a powerful, integrated mobile application to streamline data acquisition.  With built-in sample planning, laboratory data upload, and a wide range of reporting and visualization tools, EIM is a complete solution for any environmental monitoring and reporting need and an excellent fit for natural resources monitoring.

“As the U.S. EPA recently approved the Cortina Rancheria Kletsel Dehe Band of Wintun Indians’ right to develop tribal water quality standards, the timing for EIM implementation is perfect.  Their use of EIM will help achieve their environmental stewardship goals by providing them the software tools to efficiently manage their water quality and tribal resources” said Wes Hawthorne, President of Locus.  “Our EIM software will also support their need to upload data to the EPA’s systems in a timely and efficient manner”.
