The MiSTAR project was initiated to help EGLE manage their regulatory program related to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s Underground Injection Control (UIC) program. Their goal was to allow the regulated community to electronically submit required records through the MiSTAR application. Regulated companies needed to be able to securely login and submit records for their company and then agency staff needed to be able to review the submissions for approval prior to those records becoming part of an official “system of record.”
This project used the Microsoft technology stack: C#, .NET Core and SQL Server. It included updating and integrating with a pre-existing application, which Line 45 made enhancements to and provided configuration services for. Line 45 also provided support to the Department of Technology, Management & Budget (DTMB) during the application installation process.
Working in partnership with the Ground Water Protection Council (GWPC) and OnCore Consulting, Line 45 implemented a security service and established a roles and permissions framework to meet EGLE’s needs. This included integrating security services with two web applications to provide a seamless flow of data from the input forms to the data management application that the agency uses to administer their program. The MiSTAR application displays information to users based on their roles. This provides administrative users the ability to monitor and review incoming data for accuracy and integrity. The system also provides a simplified document management feature for documents submitted to the agency by companies. These documents can be reviewed, accepted and viewed by agency users. This project is currently under active development and is scheduled for release in spring of 2022.
