Discharge Monitoring Reports (DMRs) for MSGP Stormwater Permittees

June 2018 - Starting Sept. 1, 2018, Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) discharge monitoring reports (DMRs) must be submitted electronically using the NetDMR system, unless the permittee requests and obtains an electronic reporting waiver. Only facilities who obtain a waiver will be allowed to continue submitting paper DMRs after Sept. 1, 2018.

Important Update:
Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) TXR050000, NetDMR Electronic Reporting Temporary Waiver Issued

If you currently have an active stormwater Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) TXR050000 authorization, please be aware that although the MSGP states that effective Dec. 21, 2016, all discharge monitoring reports (DMRs) must be submitted electronically using the online NetDMR reporting system, this option is not available at this time.

Samples for MSGP DMRs must be collected before Dec. 31, 2018, and the sampling results must be reported to the TCEQ by March 31, 2019.

Permittees are required to submit MSGP DMRs for:

  • facilities in sectors A, C, D, E, J, O, and S, and;
  • facilities in all sectors required to meet numeric effluent limits for hazardous metals, when sample results indicate an exceedance of any constituent listed.

The TCEQ may grant a Temporary Waiver from the electronic reporting rule in limited cases. If you are unable to report electronically, you can submit a Request for Electronic Reporting Waiver Microsoft Word Document form (TCEQ-20754). A separate waiver form is required for each permit or authorization. Waiver forms may also be obtained by contacting the Stormwater Permitting Program at 512-239-3700.

To submit your DMRs electronically, you must access the NetDMR system through the EPA’s Central Data Exchange (CDX). Please visit the NetDMR Support Portal webpageExit the TCEQ to find information on how to create an account. Facilities can also contact EPA’s eReporting help desk at 1-877-227-8965, or send an email to support@epanet.zendesk.com to receive assistance with creating a CDX account.
