CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection is investigating a computer breach.

It has prompted the DEP to take external applications offline.

The electronic submission system which is primarily affected is used by various industries to permit applications and submit compliance data.

At this time, the DEP says there is no reason to suspect any personal information of the users were compromised.

They expect to be back online next week.
