STEERS Account Setup

STEERS Setup Guide

To file an NOI for your large construction site, you’ll need to create an account and number.

Firstly, you’ll need to set up your State of Texas Environmental Electronic Reporting System (STEERS) account.

Next, you will need to have an ER number with the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality (TCEQ). The ER number is your STEERS account number that allows Cardinal to grant access to  paperwork required for SWPPP process.

 

Don’t worry, Cardinal has a simple step-by-step process for STEERS account setup for you to follow to make it as easy as possible.

Visit the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality (TCEQ) STEERS Login page at https://www3.tceq.texas.gov/steers/.

On the right under the heading that reads, “I need:”, click the second link: “to create a new account.”
