Montana DEQ Introduces Online Tool for Submitting Discharge Monitoring Reports

DEQThe Montana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) recently launched a free web-based tool, called NetDMR, for use by regulated permittees to submit water quality monitoring information known as Discharge Monitoring Reports (DMRs). Every facility in the State that is required to submit a DMR can now file electronically using NetDMR, which uses the Environmental Information Exchange Network, a secure internet application.

"This online tool is a win-win for DEQ and the folks we work with across the State," says Tracy Stone-Manning, Montana DEQ Director. "It will help us deliver our services more efficiently, and it will help our partners stay in compliance with Montana's standards for water quality."

The NetDMR tool provides a number of benefits to facilities, including reduced paperwork and mailing costs as well as improved data entry accuracy. The application can also be used to revise reports if an error is discovered. Supporting documents, such as laboratory reports, can be submitted electronically as well. Users receive instant confirmation when a submission is complete.

The DEQ is encouraging facilities to sign up for NetDMR. Assistance is available from DEQ staff for creating a new account, training, and using NetDMR. Electronic submissions using NetDMR are currently optional, but are expected to be required in the future.
