Find out more about IMPACT and Open Air

Two components of the IMPACT system exist: the IMPACT Portal, used by industry to submit reports and permit applications electronically, and the Open Air website (public version of IMPACT), used by members of the public seeking air quality-related information.

  1. IMPACT Portal (https://airimpact.wyo.gov) - Upon completing the account creation process (Account Creation Guidance), industry users can log in here to submit air quality data electronically.

    Click the tab "IMPACT Portal" to access the necessary resources. 

  2. Open Air (https://openair.wyo.gov) - Free, self-service website providing the public with access to a repository of air quality data and other information regarding AQD-permitted facilities. An account is not needed. 

    Click the "Open Air Portal" tab to access guidance and more information.

In order to be compliant with the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Cross-Media Electronic Reporting Rule (CROMEER) requirements, the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (WDEQ) had to design a new application log-in and reporting method. This new method will change how users of WDEQ applications - such as the “Electronic Discharge Monitoring Report” (eDMR) system, “Mining Information Database System” (MIDAS), and “Inventory, Monitoring, Permitting, and Compliance Tracking” (IMPACT) system - access these applications and report/submit data to WDEQ.

To obtain access to WDEQ applications the user has to create an account for the State of Wyoming Online System (eGOV) and an account for Environmental IT Environmental (ENV-ITE) system. The eGov account is needed because ENV-ITE uses the eGOV username and password.

For additional information and walkthroughs, please go to the Resources section on the left of this page.

If you have any questions or need assistance with the sign up process please contact the appropriate Application Administrator (Contacts).

Please mail the completed affidavit to:
Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality,
ENVITE
200 W 17th Street, 4th Floor,
Cheyenne, WY 82002.
