ADaPT-Permitting and Compliance Assistance Program
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Solid and Hazardous Waste sections require the submittal
of ADaPT Electronic Data Deliverables (EDD) for all groundwater monitoring data. The following links to software,
guidance documents, table updates, and related information will be helpful in implementing ADaPT.
The ADaPT software requires Microsoft Office Access version 2003, 2007, or 2010 (32-bit only). The newest version
of the ADaPT software (version 7.0.04) does NOT have an Install Shield installation. Installation is accomplished by
replacing the existing ADaPT 6.4 ADaPTModule.mdb file. Please refer to the
ADaPT 7.0 Update Instructions
for details. In order to install ADaPT 7.0.04, you must first have ADaPT 6.4 installed on your computer. Please refer to our
ADaPT 6.4 Installation Instructions.
For a complete list of modifications and enhancements to each version of ADaPT, refer to our

The ADaPT Field EDD Utility
is provided as a tool to help create corresponding ADaPT Field EDDs for ADaPT Lab EDDs submitted to the SW, HW, and UIC programs
when importing into the WACS Oracle database. This tool can help you create new Field EDDs, retrieve required
information from imported Lab EDDs, or modify existing Field EDDs. After the Field EDD is created, you can
perform a data integrity check and export the properly named Field EDD. Context sensitive help screens are available
to guide the user through the process.
Field EDD Worksheet.xls
is provided as a tool that can be used for manually creating field EDDs and contains drop down menus and mouse-over messages helpful in populating each data field. Please refer to the
on how to produce a field EDD using this spreadsheet.
