The Electronic Environmental
Reporting System (E2) is
a secured XML/Internet based
system for regulatory agencies to conduct e-business
over the Internet. It is designed to address
all environmental programs and to support a wide range
of e-business such as reporting of monitoring data
(wastewater, drinking water, air, hazardous waste material,
etc.), permit application, application fee payment, hazardous
material disposal certification, etc. Currently, the
DMR and DWR modules are available. The E2 System is
designed to significantly improve data quality and save resources,
which would normally be required in a paper-based reporting
The E2 system is an intelligent data exchange server that:
- Stores real-time updates of reporting requirements provided
from the regulatory authority
- Receives reports submitted by the regulated facilities
- Evaluates reports for meeting reporting requirements
- Uploads reports to the authority's central database for
compliance assessment. System access privileges are administrated
through the use of a PIN, username, and password. All report
submissions are verified via PIN authentication with secured
socket layer security software to ensure that the content
of the data is original, truthful, legitimate, and un-altered.
A complete chain-of-custody of all records is maintained
in the E2 server.
The regulated facilities can access the E2 server via the
- Obtain the reporting requirements
- Submit reports
- Review report processing status
- Print previously submitted reports. The only software
requirement for the regulated facilities is an Internet
Browser, such as Internet Explorer or Netscape.
The E2 System is designed to significantly improve data
quality and save resources, which would normally be required
in a paper-based reporting environment. Moreover, the E2 System
is suitable for federal government, state agencies, and local
municipalities to streamline the efforts of collecting environmental
monitoring data from facilities. The technology used for the
E2 System has a broad application to environmental programs
such as wastewater discharge permitting and reporting under
the NPDES, drinking water monitoring under the SDWA, air permitting
and reporting under Title V, groundwater management, and storm
water management programs.
|| Allows security setting
per functional role, which can be grouped
together and associated with users.
Allows data to be imported from the data
management file of choice, improving
accuracy of compliance data by eliminating
unnecessary user errors.

security encryption measures to ensure
of the information.
