EGLE announces rebranding of MiWaters to MiEnviro Portal

The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) has announced the rebranding of the electronic platform currently called MiWaters, to MiEnviro Portal (MiEnviro).

The renamed MiEnviro Portal is a part of the permitting process, allowing Michiganders to fulfill federal electronic reporting requirements and provides an online component for access to public information.

This rebranding will not affect functionality of the system for users but is being done to expand the use of the system beyond EGLE’s Water Resources Division. The expansion will include various Air Quality Division program areas and the Medical Waste program in the coming year.

What to expect?

You should expect the system to work like it has. Logging in and working in the system will remain the same. Changes to the current system will be cosmetic. For instance, the system will now have the new MiEnviro Portal logo instead of the MiWaters logo.

Although some web addresses will be changed, old addresses will redirect to the new ones for some time. Links in documents will redirect to the new locations. Links online and in guidance information have either been updated or are in the process of being updated.

What should you do?

  1. Change your MiWaters log-in bookmark to the MiEnviro log-in page:
  2. Visit the MiEnviro homepage at for the most up to date information on guidance and information on MiEnviro and how to use the system, such as:

    • Logging into the system
    • Frequently asked questions
    • Links to all MiEnviro program information


  3. Check out the Water Resource Division’s MiEnviro page for information and guidance on things related to:
  • Applying for Permits
  • Managing your permits (pay fees, apply for renewals)
  • Submitting reports (required by your permit or certification)
  • Submitting service requests
  • Viewing issued permits
  • Seeing your notifications
  • Reviewing evaluation/site inspections

What’s next?

Information about other programs will be shared as they are added to the system. Overall expectations of timing have been included at and on the program pages. Affected parties are also receiving information specific to them.

These changes and the expansion of EGLE’s capabilities using a digital system improves accessibility for all stakeholders and creates consistency in EGLE’s divisions as well as across industry.
