The Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality is offering training for permittees on the use of the NetDMR online application for the submission of discharge monitoring reports. A discharge monitoring report, known as a DMR, is a self-reporting document that is generated by permittees that have a Louisiana Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit. The DMR contains information pertaining to water discharges into waters of the state.

The three-hour session is intended to provide permittees and data providers with an overview of the NetDMR application that will enable the online submissions of the required discharge monitoring reports. The training will instruct participants on registering for an account, entering data and signing and submitting a DMR online using the NetDMR test environment.

The training schedule is as follows:

Baton Rouge

March 15, 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., DEQ Headquarters, 602 N. 5th Street, 10th floor computer training rooms
