What is NetDMR?

  • A Web-based tool that allows permittees to electronically sign and submit discharge monitoring reports (DMRs).

  • NetDMR was developed under an EPA grant by a consortium of 12 states coordinated by the Environmental Council of States (ECOS) and led by Texas.

  • The data is automatically submitted from NetDMR to the EPA’s Integrated Compliance Information System (ICIS)-NPDES database.

NetDMR Security

  • Communications with NetDMR are secured by a password, responses to security questions, and use of a security protocol commonly used by online banking sites.

  • In addition, NetDMR has received approval from EPA that it meets the requirements of the Cross-Media Electronic Reporting Rule (CROMERR). The CROMERR standards are designed to provide these electronic submittals with the same level of legal dependability as the corresponding paper submittals.

  • Account creation tips

    Account Creation Tips

    Choose “Permitte User” for your user type if you will need signatory access. The “Data Provider” user type is edit only.

    When creating an account, answer your security questions in one word answers, either in all capitals or all lowercase letters. WRITE THEM DOWN AND SAVE THEM!
