state, tribe or local government has sufficient legal authority to 
implement the electronic reporting components of the programs covered 
by the application and will use electronic document receiving systems 
that meet the applicable subpart D requirements.

Protection (WVDEP) submitted a revised application titled Environmental 
Submission System (ESS) for revisions/modifications to its EPA-approved 
programs under title 40 CFR to allow new electronic reporting. EPA
