Frequent Questions

Why is EPA requiring the electronic reporting of DMRs and other NPDES reports?

Electronic reporting saves time and resources for permittees, states, and EPA while increasing data accuracy, improving compliance, and supporting EPA’s goal of providing better protection of the nation’s waters. Electronic reporting and the sharing of NPDES information between states and EPA will help provide greater clarity on who is and who is not in compliance and enhances transparency by providing a timelier, complete, more accurate, and nationally-consistent set of data about the NPDES program.
