The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) is now receiving most reports and submittals electronically from wastewater treatment facilities with National Pollutant Discharge Elimination (NPDES)/State Disposal System (SDS) permits. These permits require certain reports and water quality (WQ) submittals

The majority of these WQ submittals can now be emailed to:

Please follow these steps:

  • Fill out the WQ submittals form (available at the bottom of the DMRs webpage)
  • Attach the form and submittal to your email
  • Send the email by the due date

Note: The MPCA will not deem the WQ submittal as received unless the form is attached.

The EXCEPTIONS to this new electronic submittal process:

  • Pretreatment Annual Reports
  • Whole Effluent Toxicity Tests (WET Tests)

These reports must still be submitted as paper copies to:

Minnesota Pollution Control Agency
Attention: WQ Submittals Center
520 Lafayette Road North
St. Paul, MN 55155-4194

PLEASE REMEMBER: This does NOT pertain to DMR submittals and attachments. Please continue to submit your DMRs as you normally would as that electronic submittal process has not changed. The new process pertains only to water quality submittals. Also, you do NOT need to follow up with a mailed in copy if you have submitted it electronically.

If you have any questions regarding this new process, please contact your assigned data manager or compliance staff person.
