Monitoring and Reporting
Wastewater facilities play an important role in their own overall
compliance status by providing proper operation and maintenance,
conducting routine self-audits, and by implementing adequate process
controls. In doing so, a facility can help prevent many potential
To ensure that surface water and ground water are adequately
protected, it is necessary to verify that discharges to these waters
meet permit limitations on the quality of the discharge. This is done
largely through self-monitoring activities performed by the wastewater
facilities as described above. The results of which are submitted to the
Department through monthly or quarterly Discharge
Monitoring Reports (DMRs) as required in their permits. This DMR
data is used to supplement the Departmentís compliance inspection
activities. Compliance inspection activities are performed by staff in
the Department's six district offices and
delegated local programs.
Newest Enhanced Version Ė Ez
Discharge Monitoring Report (EzDMR)
As part of the Departmentís ongoing efforts to improve business
processes, we have developed paper-less alternative for environmental
reporting using e-Commerce and Internet technologies. Currently, the
Department is working with Industrial and Domestic wastewater facilities
that are signing up to use the Electronic Discharge Monitoring Report (EzDMR)
System. The Departmentís web-enabled EzDMR System offers the advantage
of less process for the regulated community. By offering this
streamlined reporting option, the system offers significant labor
savings for both the Department and the public. Most importantly, while
saving these costs, the system also increases timeliness.
