NPDES Electronic Reporting Rule

 HOT TOPIC: NPDES Electronic Reporting Rule

EPA is proposing a regulation that would require electronic reporting for current paper-based NPDES reports. This action will save time and resources for permittees, states, tribes, territories, and EPAwhile improving compliance and providing better protection of the Nation's waters. 


The proposed Clean Water Act regulation would require permittees and regulators to use existing, available information technology to electronically report information and data related to the NPDES permit program in lieu of filing written reports.
