Michigan Environmental Health and Drinking Water Information System (MiEHDWIS)
The first release of MiEHDWIS, nicknamed Eddy, launched in September 2020 - kicking off a multi-year project to modernize many of Drinking Water and Environmental Health Division's existing permitting, licensing, and compliance information systems into one web-based application. The goal of MiEHDWIS is to streamline communication between Michigan's public drinking water supplies and the Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE), increase data transparency and, in future releases, facilitate collaboration between EGLE and local health department staff supporting environmental health programs. Many MiEHDWIS features will eventually be available to regulated entities (campgrounds, public swimming pools, public water supplies, etc.), such as applying for permits or licenses and uploading reports and documentation.
