The first day of the 2017 Q2 reporting period is Saturday, July 1, 2017. However, the EPA Host System will be offline for maintenance starting at 5pm ET Friday, June 30, 2017
, and will be available again the morning of Monday, July 3.
While the EPA Host System is unavailable, the following functionality is not available in the Client Tool: synchronize, retrieve, and submit. During that time, users can only work with the Client Tool "offline".
Sources required to report 2017 Q2 emissions data under the Acid Rain Program (ARP), the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR), the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), and the Mercury and Air Toxic Standards (MATS) rule have until the end of the day on Monday, July 31, 2017 to submit their emissions data to the EPA using the ECMPS Client Tool.
During this reporting period, the EPA expects to receive approximately 4,000 emissions data submissions. Sources are encouraged to begin working on their submissions as early as possible in order to give themselves sufficient time to complete all submissions by the deadline.
With the large volume of submissions expected, we encourage sources to start working with their data as soon as possible. If you have questions you will get a faster response to your technical support request the earlier in the month you submit your request. If you wait until later in the month to begin working with your data and you run into problems that require technical support, your request will be added to a much longer queue of technical support requests.
