NEW- NetDMR E-Reporting is here!
Electronic Reporting for APDES Permits
Alaska has implemented Phase I of the EPA E-Reporting Rule. Effective immediately, NetDMR is available for all APDES permits with DMR requirements. Please see rollout schedule below for permits based on Major/Minor status:
- Group 1: Major Individual and General Permit Authorizations - April - June 2017
- Group 2: Minor Individual Permits - July-September 2017
- Group 3: General Permit Authorizations - October - January 2018
At this time all DMRs must be submitted electronically through NetDMR. Paper submittals will no longer be accepted.
Electronic Reporting Tools and Training
Alaska is using EPA's instance of the NetDMR program. EPA's tools are web-based and require only a computer, an Internet browser, and high-speed internet access. These tools communicate securely, requiring passwords and known responses to security questions. They are designed to provide electronic submittals with the same level of legal dependability as paper submittals.
DEC encourages APDES permittees to attend EPA's nationally scheduled training webinars as well as utilize system tips, tools, and other useful self-reporting guidance documents.
Public Information for Facility Compliance
The ECHO system allows public availability of electronically reported data. ECHO enables public searches for facilities in local communities to assess their compliance with environmental regulations. It can also be used to investigate pollution sources, examine and create enforcement-related maps, or explore states' performance.
