DEEP: NetDMR in Connecticut

NetDMR in Connecticut      {Simple eFILE icon}     

What is NetDMR?

NetDMR is a freely available Web-based tool that allows permittees to electronically sign and submit their discharge monitoring reports (DMRs) or stormwater monitoring reports (SMRs) to EPA via a secure internet connection. NetDMR is designed to improve data quality, save paper, and provide cost savings for permittees and regulators. An essential component of NetDMR is the exchange of data that allows permittees to complete a DMR or an SMR that is specific to their permit limits and outfalls which then gets directly transferred electronically to EPA’s data exchange network (ICIS-NPDES) upon submittal.

What are the benefits of NetDMR?

  •  Immediate confirmation of submission.   
  •  Opportunity for instant, electronic revisions.
  •  Less time between submission and correspondence.
  •  Instant accessibility to electronic submissions. 
  •  Ability to upload and attach supplemental documents.

Who can report data using NetDMR?

Any permittee (facility) in the state of Connecticut that is required to submit DMRs or SMRs in compliance with a currently issued Individual National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), Individual Pretreatment, General Categorical, General Miscellaneous or General Stormwater Construction permit is eligible to file their DMRs or SMRs electronically.

To register for NetDMR, follow the steps below: 

Step 1: Review and complete the CT DEEP NetDMR Subscriber Agreement. The NetDMR Subscriber Agreement is a paper document specific to Connecticut that requires the signature of a corporate officer or an elected town official to legally designate a Subscriber who will sign and submit electronic DMR data on behalf of a facility. 

If you are registering on behalf of a privately owned entity such as a corporation, LLC, partnership or sole proprietorship, please read the CT DEEP NetDMR Subscriber Agreement Instructions before completing the CT DEEP NetDMR Subscriber Agreement Word Fillable Form.

If you are registering on behalf of a publicly owned entity such as a federal, state or governmental entity, please read the CT DEEP NetDMR Subscriber Agreement Instructions before completing the CT DEEP NetDMR Subscriber Agreement Word Fillable Form.

Step 2:  Create an Account in NetDMR. You may create an account in NetDMR at any time. However, your role and access to your permit will not be granted until you have submitted a sufficient CT DEEP NetDMR Subscriber Agreement.
 
This EPA Training video is a second set of instructions for creating an account in NetDMR.
Please ignore the instructions in this video regarding the subscriber agreement as Connecticut has its own version with links found in Step 1 above.
 
Step3:  Begin using NetDMR! Immediately after your role is approved in NetDMR, you may begin submitting your monitoring reports electronically. It will be helpful to explore these instructions on NetDMR data entry
 
At this point, you will no longer need to submit paper DMRs/SMRs to DEEP. However, you may still be required to submit paper DMRs to your local sewer authority. It is recommended that you check with your local sewer authority to inquire about any specific reporting requirements they may have. NetDMR stores all submitted data and copies of records (CORs) that can be downloaded and emailed to various recipients.
