EPA is working with states, tribes, territories, and third-party software vendors to develop and have in place all of the electronic reporting tools and National Environmental Information Exchange Network protocols required to implement this regulation prior to the effective date of the final rule. EPA is providing the flexibility for facilities to have a range of options including:
- An EPA electronic reporting tool,
- A tool developed by a state authorized to implement the NPDES program, or
- Tools developed by third-party vendors, if such tools meet the requirements of the final rule.
