State & Local Emissions Inventory System (SLEIS)

Annual Emissions Reporting

To all permittees, the Bureau of Air Quality Planning is open for limited business under the Governor’s directive issued on Monday, March 16, 2020.  Bureau staff will maintain a limited presence in the office and will telecommute on a regular basis.  When staff is working from home, the best way to contact them will be through their work email address. 

For this reason the Bureau of Air Quality Planning has extended the deadline to submit the annual emission reports to Friday, May 1, 2020. 

Please be aware that you can still submit your reports via the SLEIS tool online, however, staff will not be regularly in the office to answer questions.  Feel free to email us at SLEIS@ndep.nv.gov or leave a message at either of the phone numbers below.  We will answer these messages as soon as we can.

Annual emissions reports for NDEP's Air Program-permitted facilities are now submitted through the State & Local Emissions Inventory System (SLEIS). SLEIS is a web-based application that allows permitted facilities to compile and submit their point source emissions inventory data and can be found at https://sleis.ndep.nv.gov/.

The deadline for all permitted facilities to submit their 2019 emissions report is May 1, 2020.

NDEP's Air Quality Program staff have prepared a tutorial video for first-time users of the new reporting system:

If you are submitting your annual emissions report through SLEIS for the first time, please watch the tutorial before attempting to login and/or enter data.

Data and Information Management

In addition to data collected for permit fee billing purposes, the Data and Information Management Branch, in cooperation with the Mobile, Smoke, and Area Sources Branch, also collects and prepares emissions data annually for the National Emissions Inventory (NEI) of the US EPA. These data are used by the US EPA and the NDEP for statewide and regional studies, assessing program effectiveness, and other planning purposes.

EPA's Emission Inventory and Analysis Group (EPA/OAR/OAQPS/AQAD/EIAG) prepares a national database of air emissions information with input from numerous state and local air agencies, from tribes, and from industry. This database contains information on stationary and mobile sources that emit criteria air pollutants and their precursors, as well as hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). The database includes estimates of annual emissions, by source, of air pollutants in each area of the country, on an annual basis.

Data from the NEI are used for air dispersion modeling, regional strategy development, regulation setting, air toxics risk assessment, and tracking trends in emissions over time. For emission inventories prior to 1999, criteria pollutant emission estimates were maintained in the National Emission Trends (NET) database and HAP emission estimates were maintained in the National Toxics Inventory (NTI) database. Beginning with 1999, criteria and HAP emissions data were prepared in a more integrated fashion in the National Emissions Inventory (NEI), which takes the place of the NET and the NTI.
