Once you have acquired an eGov account, the next step is to apply for access to the Environmental IT Environmental (ENV-ITE) system. The ENV-ITE system was developed by the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to provide a legal framework for electronic submittal of applications and reports. This system will authenticate users and define the role of the user as someone who can edit an application and/or sign an application. According to federal regulations, only certain individuals have the authority to sign a WYPDES permit application. Please use the table below to help you determine if you should request the role of “edit” or “eSign.”

Authorized signatories for this application  are the following:

For corporations:

A principal executive officer of at least the level of vice president, or the manager of one or more manufacturing, production, or operating facilities, provided the manager is authorized to make management decisions which govern the overall operation of the facility from which the discharge originates.

For partnerships:

A general partner.

For a sole proprietorship:

The proprietor.

For a municipal, state, federal or other public facility:

Either a principal executive officer or ranking elected official.

The DEQ will provide electronic notification when your ENV-ITE account is approved.
