Water Quality in Indiana

Water Quality in Indiana > NetDMR NetDMR



NetDMR is for online reporting of NPDES and industrial wastewater pretreatment permits.


IDEM will not accept paper DMRs/MROs/MMRs after the end of 2016. The last paper DMRs that can be submitted will be for November 2016. NetDMR will be required for all DMRs/MROs/MMRs beginning with the December 2016 reports.

What are the benefits of NetDMR?

  • Reduces paperwork burden
  • Assists with DMR data quality by automatically checking for certain violations prior to submission
  • Improves timeliness and accessibility of DMR data
  • Provides instant confirmation of submission
  • Allows for fast revisions of DMR data that can be submitted electronically
  • Allows the attachment of approved supporting documents (see the IDEM NetDMR FAQs for approved document list)

Who should report through the NetDMR system?

Every facility in the state of Indiana that is required by a NPDES or Industrial Wastewater Pretreatment (IWP) permit to submit DMRs needs to enroll in NetDMR and begin submitting reports electronically. Use of NetDMR will become mandatory for all permit holders in 2016.

Before Using NetDMR

  • Browser Minimum Requirements: Microsoft Internet Explorer Version 6.X or Firefox 2.X, with Cookies and Javascript enabled
Step 2: Take the NetDMR Training

Step 3: Begin with the NetDMR Test Website
  • It is recommended that permittees start by using the NetDMR Test Website to become familiar with registration, data entry, and submittal processes and practice submitting at least one DMR electronically before moving on to the Live Website.
  • Log In to NetDMR Test Website and notify (by email) when a test NetDMR and attached MMR/MRO have been successfully submitted.
Step 4: Register for the NetDMR Live Website

Log in to the NetDMR Live Website and go through the registration process again.

Use the same instructions for the NetDMR test website to register at the Live NetDMR Website. You will need to follow the same steps to recreate your username, password and account information in order to register for the NetDMR Live Website, with one addition. Near the end of the registration process, you will follow the steps below:

  1. Complete and submit an Indiana Subscriber Agreement. The Indiana Subscriber Agreement is specific to the State of Indiana regulations and cannot be substituted with U.S. EPA Subscriber Agreements.

    Upon approval, each NetDMR electronic signature thereafter will refer to the Subscriber Agreement signature(s), until a change in signatory authority is warranted.
