NPDES eRule National Webinar
Date and Time
- Tuesday, January 19, 2021
- 2:30pm – 4:30pm Eastern
This webinar presented important information on the NPDES Electronic Reporting Rule (NPDES eRule) implementation. EPA provided an update on NPDES eRule implementation to States and EPA Regions with a particular focus on Phase 2 (general permits, program reports, other Phase 2 data).
EPA discussed different aspects for Phase 2 implementation:
- Working with NeT States: EPA is actively working with states that are using EPA’s NPDES Electronic Reporting Tool (or “NeT”) to develop electronic reporting applications that deliver as many benefits as possible. For example, some of our first efforts are on the general permit categories with the largest number of facilities (industrial and construction stormwater).
- Working with EDT States: EPA developed a series of technical papers to better define the NPDES eRule data elements and we are now developing an interim data mapping template to help states that use electronic data transfer (EDT).
EPA discussed its outreach to states and how states can collaborate with EPA during Phase 2 implementation.
