Prior to completing the eDMR registration form, the Owner must verify facility permit information. If the Owner has multiple NPDES permitted facilities, all facility permit numbers that are eligible for eDMR registration must be verified. The registration process will register the Owner for the eDMR application. All NPDES permits issued to the Owner will be able to submit discharge monitoring data via the eDMR application once the Owner has been registered.
The information related to the facility permit(s) is maintained in the North Carolina Division of Water Quality (NC DWQ) data management system. This information is used to populate the eDMR application with the appropriate information related to the NPDES permitted facilities for electronic DMR creation and submittal. Three critical pieces of information must be verified for each facility’s NPDES permit to ensure proper registration:
Facility permit information can be verified online by typing in a facility’s NPDES permit number in the box provided below and clicking the "Verify Permit" button. This permit number is used to identify the Owner Name (i.e. Permittee). The permit information related to all NPDES Wastewater permits issued to the specified Owner/Permittee will be returned in a pdf report format. The Owner/Permittee should verify that all permits are returned in the report. If there are permits missing from the list, the permittee should conduct a search for each missing permit(s) and verify the Owner Name. Permits that are not included in the initial search list will normally have a different Owner Name that is specified in the DWQ system. This difference in Owner Name must be corrected prior to registration so that all permits reflect the same Owner Name. The report can be printed or saved for documentation purposes.
The report will contain the following information:
Should the Owner Name, Facility Classification, or ORC Designations be incorrect, the owner must notify the appropriate NC DWQ contact to resolve any discrepancies before continuing with the registration process.
