Hands-on training offered by DEQ for NetDMR online reporting

Aug 01, 2014

Baton Rouge - The Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality is offering training for permittees on the use of the NetDMR online application for the submission of discharge monitoring reports. A discharge monitoring report, known as a DMR, is a selfreporting document that is generated by permittees who have a Louisiana Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit. The DMR contains information pertaining to water discharges into waters of the state.

DEQ's training is conducted in person in a computer lab setting to allow for hands-on experience using NetDMR. The one-day session lasts approximately three hours and is intended to provide permittees and data providers with an overview of the NetDMR application which will enable the online submission of Discharge Monitoring Reports. Participants will walk through registering for an account, entering data, and signing and submitting a DMR online using the NetDMR test environment.
