To ensure that the EQuIS Vapor Intrusion reference values are present during the data import process, users will need to populate the following fields in the EQuIS database:
•RT_BUILDING_TYPE.BUILDING_TYPE – Identifies the type of building being sampled/evaluated (e.g., Industrial, Commercial, Residential)
•RT_BUILDING_USE_TYPE.BUILDING_USE_TYPE – Identifies how the building is being used (e.g., Manufacturing, Warehouse, Dry Cleaner)
•RT_FOUNDATION_TYPE.FOUNDATION_TYPE – Designates the type of foundation for the building (e.g., Basement, Crawl Space, Slab)
•RT_SUBFACILITY_PARAM_TYPE.PARAM_CODE – Unique parameter codes designed for investigating vapor intrusion in buildings (e.g., Cleaning Products, New Carpet, Number of Occupants, etc.)
An example reference value EDD file for vapor intrusion data (VI_ReferenceValueEDD_Example.xls) is available on the EarthSoft Community Center for download.
If desired, populate the DT_PERSON table with a list of all the field personnel involved in the data collection. This is optional and may be useful when setting up field personnel fields in the Collect Forms.
•PERSON_NAME – This is a required field and the name must be unique across the database.
•TITLE – If helpful, populate this field with the person’s title or to which team they belong (e.g., Calibrator, Auditor, Sampler, Manager).
•COMPANY_CODE – This field can be used to distinguish agency personnel from the non-agency personnel. In Collect, a filter can be setup to only show agency personnel on forms.
