Expansion release timeline

We are expanding how information for our department programs are handled. MiEnviro Portal is a comprehensive electronic notification, permitting, emissions reporting, and compliance application.

This application is an expansion of our previous web-based application, MiWaters.

The expansion to MiEnviro Portal will be released in stages; tentative timelines for each program release is included below. We will share additional information on this page when new content is rolled out.

MiEnviro Portal for air

The Air Quality Division is modernizing how information for air quality related programs is handled. This will be done with a new electronic notification, permitting, emissions reporting, and compliance software product called MiEnviro Portal.  

Throughout 2024: emissions reporting, asbestos, permitting, and compliance reporting

Implications for businesses

The MiEnviro Portal system gives the regulated community (contractors, consultants, municipalities, manufacturing, and commercial businesses) the ability to submit a variety of information electronically.  Incorporating the air quality information into this platform will allow for: 

  • the collection of data necessary to implement the federal Clean Air Act (CAA) and state Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act (NREPA)
  • a comprehensive, consolidated database that includes emissions inventory, compliance and enforcement, permitting, dry cleaning, and asbestos
  • electronic submission of compliance reports, permit applications, notifications, plans, and other information necessary to meet regulatory requirements
  • streamlined emissions reporting processes
  • advanced technology that provides more access to electronic information

Implications for the public

MiEnviro Portal will allow the public access to more information than is currently available on EGLE’s webpages.

There will be easier access to permit applications, compliance reports, inspections reports, and air quality related items open for public comment.

MiEnviro Portal for medical waste

The MiEnviro Portal is a part of the Materials Management Division medical waste permitting process (registrations), and provides an online component for access to public information.

New and current registrants have been notified and given instructions. If you have questions, please contact MedicalWaste@Michigan.gov.

Implications for producers

Medical waste producers will submit initial and renewal registration requests, update registration information, and print a certificate of registration after issuance. 

Implications for the public

The public can view registration details and verify whether a valid, current medical waste registration exists.
