One of the USEPA's current national compliance initiatives targets a reduction in the rate of significant non-compliance with National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits. Examples of significant non-compliance include both failure to submit discharge monitoring reports (DMRs) and exceedances of permit limits and/or benchmarks. To implement this initiative, Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) is first examining facilities that have not submitted DMRs. MDNR has stated that violators who miss two months in a row will be targeted to receive a compliance visit.

Is your facility submitting DMRs on the appropriate schedule? Check your permit to be sure! Remember, all DMRs must be submitted online through the E2 system.
