New Electronic DMRs for Missouri NPDES Permits

On June 27, 2013, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) announced that the agency is launching an electronic reporting system for Clean Water Act discharge monitoring reports (DMRs).

According to the MDNR’s factsheet, the electronic reporting program – eDMR – is designed to:

  • Save facilities compliance costs with a streamlined reporting method and readily available computer tools.
  • Save programmatic costs by reducing resources required for managing paper-based DMR reports.
  • Improve the accuracy of compliance data by eliminating potential errors that will be otherwise introduced through manual data entry.
  • Improve the state wastewater discharge treatment programs’ overall effectiveness while offering an efficient reporting process to the regulated community.

MDNR has workshops currently scheduled from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on July 23, Aug. 6, Aug. 20, Sept. 3 and Sept. 17 at the MOTEC Training Center, 1738 E. Elm St., in Jefferson City.
