To All WRD Employees (Sent via bcc):
WATER RESOURCES DISCIPLINE POLICY MEMORANDUM NO. 2009.01
Subject: Policy on the distribution of publically available USGS Water Resources Software on the Internet
In May 2004, when the Hydrologic Applications Software Support (HASS) Program disbanded, the Office of Water Information in an unnumbered memorandum on "Realignment of Water Resources Discipline Hydrologic Applications Software Support (HASS) to Discipline and Research Offices," distributed information and instructions regarding approval, publishing, and maintaining software on the web. This policy has been revised and is being re-released as a numbered Water Resources Discipline policy memorandum. The revised policy is attached below and supersedes the previous unnumbered memorandum.
The Technical Offices (Office of Ground Water, Office of Surface Water, and Office of Water Quality) are the primary technical contacts for the new policy and the Water Web Team are the primary operational contacts.
