The main purpose of this project is to support the implementation of EPA's new Exceptional Event Rule by developing and delivering a suitable Exceptional Event Decision Support System (EE DSS). The functionality of the system includes: (1) detection and description of EEs, (2) preparation of EE flag justification reports, and (3) evaluation and approval of the EE flags by Regional and Federal EPA. The corresponding activities supported by EE DSS include: accessing and processing data, analyzing events and preparing EE Justification reports. These tasks will be accomplished by three major components of EE DSS shown below:

The main purpose of this project is to support the implementation of EPA's new Exceptional Event Rule by developing and delivering a suitable Decision Support System, Networks for Exceptional Event Decision Support (NEDS). The functionality of the system includes: (1) detection and description of EEs, (2) preparation of flag justification of EE-influenced samples, and (3) evaluation and approval of the EE flags by Regional and Federal EPA. The corresponding functionality of NEDS includes: accessing and processing data, analyzing events and preparing EE Justification reports. These tasks will be accomplished by three major components of NEDS shown below:  
# Data network, Network for Event Decision Support, an infrastructure for accessing and integrating distributed EE-relevant data and models

The three components of EE DSS working together, constitute an end-to-end information processing system that takes observations as inputs and produces "actionable" knowledge necessary for EE decision making. The knowledge derived from observations and models is in the form of evidence that an exceedance would not have occurred '''''but for''''' the impact of the exceptional event. Unlike traditional monolithic, closed "stove pipe" DSS, the proposed networked data system will follow a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). In fact, the EE DSS will be a "network of networks". In NEDS, the data will be distributed through a ''network of providers''. Similarly, in FASTNET, the collaborating analysts will form a ''network of analysts''. It is also anticipate that with time the EE regulatory process will also include a ''network of States, Regional and Federal EPA offices''.

The knowledge derived from observations and models is in the form of evidence that an exceedance would not have occurred but for the impact of the exceptional event. Unlike traditional monolithic, closed stove pipe DSS, the proposed DSS will follow a network-centric architecture. Data will be accessed from a network of providers. Similarly, the collaborating analysts will form a network. It is also anticipate that with time the EE flagging regulatory process will also include networking among the States, Regional and EPA offices.
  
 
Major components of the proposed EE DSS project have been developed over the past decade in projects. At Washington University these projects included: DataFed supported by NSF, EPA,NASA and FASTNet (RPOs), SHAIRED (refs) as well as work conducted by CAPITA while supporting EPA in preparation of the EE Rule itself. Similar developments at Co-I and Collaborating partners have also produced an impressive stock data, tools and methods relevant to EE DSS. The new components of the proposed system are the EE-specific tools in the and the Exceptional Event Reporting Facility. (note from Rich's letter)
