Submitting Data Monitoring Report (DMR) Forms

The capability for NPDES Stormwater Permit-holders to submit data through NC DEQ's eDMR System is not yet in place.  The agency is working towards this goal and will notify permittees when eDMR is ready to accept stormwater monitoring data.  Until that time, paper DMR submittals must be delivered to the Division no later than 30 days from the date the facility receives the sampling results.  In addition, use the link below to upload completed DMR forms electronically into the permit file in our digital repository:
