Small Business Assistance


LDEQ's Small Business Assistance Program (SBAP) provides environmental regulatory assistance and information to small businesses and communities.

SBAP operates in accordance with the Confidentiality option provided by the EPA Enforcement Response Policy, effective August 12, 1994, regarding Section 507 of the Clean Air Act. Under this policy, violations detected through assistance will be kept confidential.

CDX/NetDMR Registration Assistance

The Small Business Assistance Program offers assistance registering for NetDMR. NetDMR is a web-based tool that allows facilities to electronically sign and submit LPDES discharge monitoring reports (DMRs) to the LDEQ. For information about NetDMR, click here.

The CDX/NetDMR Registration Assistance all around the state will have the LDEQ Small Business Assistance staff in conjunction with the LDEQ NetDMR Team helping permittees in setting up their CDX/NetDMR accounts in NetDMR. The LDEQ staff will help the permittees one-on-one to establish their username and password at the CDX level and request access to their permit(s) at the NetDMR level. You can bring a completed registration packet to the assistance or you can fill one out there (click here for registration packet). Users who need help with already existing accounts are also welcome to attend.
