MDEQ recently announced a series of instructional workshops to be held around the state to educate the regulated community on the use of NetDMR, MDEQ’s new online reporting tool for submitting Discharge Monitoring Reports (DMRs) electronically using a secure website.

According to MDEQ, the NetDMR system will reduce the paperwork burden, improve the quality of data, and improve timeliness of DMR submittals. Any Mississippi permitee with DMR submittal requirements in their NPDES, Pretreatment, or General Permit, is eligible to submit electronic DMRs.

The NetDMR classroom training sessions will provide an overview of NetDMR, including registration, data entry, and importing data. Each class will include a hands-on training exercise that will allow permittees to register and submit a DMR to the training environment. Classes are limited to 25 people, and registration is required. To register, please contact Annette Brocks at 601-961-5252 or by email at Annette_Brocks@deq.state.ms.us. In your email, please include your name, phone number, and the class you wish to attend. If more than one person is attending from a company, each person must register separately.
