The Oregon Department of Quality’s own Martina Frey has been chosen to serve on a national board that is working to modernize the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s database for permit compliance and enforcement data.
Martina was one of a handful of water quality experts selected from across the United States to be part of the ICIS Modernization Board. ICIS stands for Integrated Compliance Information System, and is where states and EPA regional branches report their monitoring and enforcement activities.
The board will help articulate the vision, workflows, and business requirements for a modernized compliance and enforcement information system that meets the needs currently served by ICIS. The board will recommend how EPA should undertake the next phase of modernization and report out to stakeholders.
“This is a singular honor for DEQ to have one our staff selected for this work,” said Justin Green, DEQ Water Quality Administrator. “Martina’s expertise in water quality permitting makes her an ideal board member.”
Martina has been with DEQ for three years as a Senior Water Quality Permit Compliance Analyst. She is the lead of the Compliance Policy and Data Management team in DEQ’s Water Quality Division. Among other duties, her team is responsible for NPDES data management and reporting. She also serves as the subject matter expert for water reporting for Your DEQ Online.
