NPDES e-Reporting Rule
New articles and comments
Are you looking to also have permittees doing all permit applications (e.g., Form 2C) electronically?
For non-authorized states, where EPA handles all NPDES permitting, will you also implement the electronic reporting?
If we file eDMR now, would we have to re-submit or copy EPA?
Currently, our state program requires a new permit format for data entry. Will electronic reporting support our state?s new format?
Just to clarify - the Rule will not change requirements for data entry by the states?
Many states have a different certification statement for Whole Effluent Toxicity (WET) testing. How will this be accommodated?
Some states require co-permittees on stormwater construction Notices of Intent (NOIs). - both the owner and the construction contractor(s). How will electronic reporting support this?
What accommodations will have to be made to deal with NPDES data that is being submitted against an old format permit? Some permittees do not have the new format permit and that is a prerequisite to entering data electronically in the system.
Who will be granted a temporary waiver from the proposed rule?
What is EPA's approach going to be regarding states that already provide e-reporting for their NPDES permit holders?
Will the Proposed Rule deal with the question of what records a permittee must keep for things submitted electronically? Will a facility still need to maintain a paper copy for 3 years or whatever the requirement is?
