Starting Sept. 1, 2018, Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) discharge monitoring reports (DMRs) must be submitted electronically using the NetDMR system, unless the permittee requests and obtains an electronic reporting waiver. Only facilities who obtain a waiver will be allowed to continue submitting paper DMRs after Sept. 1, 2018.
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality’s (TCEQ) may grant a Temporary Waiver from the electronic reporting rule in limited cases. If you are unable to report electronically, you can submit a Request for Electronic Reporting Waiver form (TCEQ-20754). A separate waiver form is required for each permit or authorization. Waiver forms may also be obtained by contacting the Stormwater Permitting Program at 512-239-3700.
To submit your DMRs electronically, you must access the NetDMR system through the EPA’s Central Data Exchange (CDX). Please visit the NetDMR Support Portal webpage to find information on how to create an account. Facilities can also contact EPA’s eReporting help desk at 1-877-227-8965, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive assistance with creating a CDX account.
