NetDMR Introduction

DEC is now requiring permittees to electronically-submit Discharge Monitoring Report (DMR) data through EPA's electronic reporting system, NetDMR. NetDMR is accessible from any computer with internet access.

Benefits of NetDMR:

  • No paper and postage needed
  • Better DMR management
  • Improved accuracy and consistency of DMR data

Getting Started

DEC has developed guidance to walk permittees through the entire NetDMR process, from creating accounts to signing and submitting DMRs. Setting up an account is a two-step process. Users first need to set-up a CDX account on EPA's website and then link their permit to NetDMR. DEC has developed a PDF which provides step-by-step instructions. Please follow the guidance in the PDF located on the right (Creating CDX Account).

Once your account is created, your can enter DMR data directly or import data using a template.

The EPA has a user's guide and videos to help you through the process.

For more information on using NetDMR, or for technical guidance, contact DEC at: 518-402-8177 or email NetDMR@dec.ny.gov.
