WPDES Permit eApplication submittals

What is eApplication?

The Department requires electronic submittal of WPDES permit applications (eApplication). Permit applicants use the DNR Switchboard to access the eApplication.

Wisconsin User ID’s

The DNR Switchboard helps people find DNR electronic forms using the State’s Web Access Management System (WAMS) without having to re-log in each time. The Department sets up your file data to allow access to your DNR forms to only your authorized users. Authorized users access their eApplication with a Wisconsin user ID and password. Wisconsin user ID’s are assigned to a person, not a facility.

If you have used WAMS to obtain state forms, you have already created a Wisconsin user ID and password. Use your current Wisconsin user ID and password when you log in to the Switchboard. You may still need to complete the Switchboard Registration form to add new electronic reporting capabilities to your existing User ID.

If you do not have a Wisconsin user ID, you can use the Switchboard to register for one. The registration process for new users works this way:

1. You Register 2. DNR Processes and Responds 3. You Obtain Forms
Register with the Switchboard by creating a Wisconsin User ID and providing your contact information and user roles. DNR processes registration information Use the Switchboard to access your eApplication using your Wisconsin user ID and password.
Send in a signed copy of your registration form to DNR. DNR notifies you that your eApplication is available.
Activate your user ID within 4 days.
