6 E-Reporting Rule What is it? Why do we need it?
When will it become law? How will it be implemented? What does it affect? Waivers? “States Readiness” deadline, consequences if not met

7 E-Reporting Rule What Is the E-reporting rule New Federal Regulation
No more paper Permit requests and periodic reports online through the internet Changes how you report, not what you report

8 E-Reporting Rule Why do we need it? A step toward leaner government
Facilitates transparency (CORA/FOIA) Rapid data availability for better decision making

9 E-Reporting Rule Important dates Public input until December 12, 2013
Effective date, (best guess) August 2014 Within 12 months Colorado must achieve “States Readiness” (90% compliance)

10 E-Reporting Rule How will it be implemented?
Modify existing permits to require electronic reporting Written into new and reissued permits

11 E-Reporting Rule What does it affect?
Discharge Monitoring reports (DMR) Notices of intent (NOI) Notices of termination (NOT) No exposure certifications (NEC) Low erosivity waivers (LEW) Sanitary sewer overflows (CSO & SSO) Periodic reports

12 E-Reporting Rule Annual waivers possible Meet hardship requirements
Economic hardship Limited internet connectivity Religious prohibition Annual application to document continuing need

13 E-Reporting Rule If state misses “States Readiness” deadline
Dual reporting will be implemented by EPA Direct electronic to EPA using their eNOI & NetDMR systems -- & -- Report to state also, using our existing methods
