Electronic NPDES and Industrial Wastewater Pretreatment Permit Reporting

The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) now requires facilities to prepare Discharge Monitoring Reports (DMR), Monthly Monitoring Reports (MMR) and Monthly Reports of Operation (MRO) using the NetDMR system.  NetDMR is for online reporting of National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) and Industrial Wastewater Pretreatment (IWP) permits.  Additional information about the system including setup and training is available on IDEM's website.  IDEM will not accept paper DMRs, MROs, or MMRs after the end of 2016.  The last paper DMRs that can be submitted will be for November 2016, and NetDMR will be required for all December 2016 DMRs, MROs, and MMRs.  Every facility in the state of Indiana that is required by a NPDES or IWP permit to submit DMRs needs to enroll in NetDMR and begin submitting reports electronically.
