Effective December 21, 2016, all NPDES facilities will be required to submit DMRs electronically using EzDMR!
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently finalized the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Electronic Reporting Rule, also known as the E-Reporting Rule. The Department adopted the federal rule by reference on August 16, 2016. This rule requires that all NPDES facilities (wastewater and stormwater) submit their Discharge Monitoring Reports (DMRs) electronically using the Departmentís Electronic Discharge Monitoring Report System (EzDMR) by December 21, 2016.
As part of the Departmentís ongoing efforts to improve business processes for facilities required to submit monitoring reports and to facilitate the stateís NPDES facilitiesí compliance with the E-Reporting Rule, we have developed EzDMR, a streamlined alternative for environmental reporting using e-Commerce and Internet technologies.
What is EzDMR?
EzDMR is a web-enabled system that electronically transmits DMRs directly to the Department from:
It is an operational electronic reporting tool with all of the necessary security for legal and electronic signature requirements, ensuring a virtually paperless reporting system.
Why submit DMRs electronically?
For all NPDES facilities, electronic reporting through EzDMR will be required by December 21, 2016; however, for all other wastewater facilities required to submit monitoring reports, the EzDMR system is designed to provide a better alternative than hand-written or paper DMRs.
Some of the benefits include:
In other words, the facility saves on postage, paper and time.
