Online system

Each municipality that plans to apply for financial assistance from Environmental Loans must submit an Intent to Apply (ITA) with Priority Evaluation and Ranking Formula (PERF) information and a Financial Assistance Application through the online system. Applicants may use the online system's document upload feature to attach loan documents.

Request WAMS ID and register for DNR Switchboard access

To gain access to the online system, you must create a Web Access Management System (WAMS) user ID and then register with the DNR Switchboard. When registering with the Switchboard, you will be asked to select a facility/company. To find the correct municipality, you can enter either the Facility ID (FID) number, WPDES permit number, Public Water Supply number, or Department of Revenue (DOR) municipal code. DOR municipal codes can be found in the second column of this spreadsheet.

  • Additional help tutorials are available on the DNR Switchboard webpage.

Authorization certificate for online submittals

If you are a consultant, the municipality must authorize you to submit online materials on its behalf by completing an Online Submittal Authorization Certificate. Note: Starting in SFY 2021, the designated consultant's authorization will stay in effect until the municipality cancels it. Email the signed, completed form to Rebecca.Mesdjian@Wisconsin.gov.
