Getting started with MPCA e-Services (p-gen1-17)
The following information explains the general rules of using MPCA e-Services.
Some services require you to be identified with a specific access type. Different access types are associated with different privileges to complete a service.
Air Signatory, Feedlot Signatory, Water Quality Signatory - These access types can create a service; enter data; grant and remove general user access to a facility; and electronically sign a service.
Note: If you were authorized to submit DMRs in the e-Services portal, your authorization will be granted at this level after you have created an account and requested access. If you need access to submit DMRs and did not have authorization in the e-Services portal, please request this access level.
To use MPCA e-Services, you must create an account. In addition, before using some services, you must add a facility to your account, and if you are an electronic signer, possibly send in a submittal agreement.
