Confluence Retirement

In an effort to consolidate USGS hosted Wikis, myUSGS’ Confluence service is scheduled for retirement on January 27th, 2023. The official USGS Wiki and collaboration space is now SharePoint. Please migrate existing spaces and content to the SharePoint platform and remove it from Confluence at your earliest convenience. If you need any additional information or have any concerns about this change, please contact Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

['Active', 'Approved', 'Completed', 'Funded', 'In Progress' ,'Proposed']

List<ProjectPart>a list objects which are key/value pairs to add information about the project that doesn't fit elsewhere
projectProductsList<ProjectProduct>a list objects to specify products from the project

            value: "Acidic precipitation has affected forested and aquatic ecosystems in New York, particularly in the Adirondack and Catskill regions. The principal goal of this study is to synthesize data on the chemistry of streams, lakes, soil, and atmospheric deposition in the Adirondacks and Catskills, and to analyze these data to detect patterns and trends in recovery from reduced levels of acid deposition."
