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

E-Reporting Rule How will it be implemented? Modify existing permits to require electronic reporting Written into new and reissued permits
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
Annual waivers possible Meet hardship requirements Economic hardship Limited internet connectivity Religious prohibition Annual application to document continuing need E-Reporting Rule
