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

March 2019 – 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.

The NetDMR system is not ready to accept DMR online submissions from Texas MSGP permittees. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) is issuing an extension for the temporary waiver for electronic reporting.

On Feb. 28, 2019, the TCEQ issued a third temporary waiver for electronic reporting of MSGP DMRs that will expire on Aug. 14, 2021. Please continue to submit paper DMRs until such date. The temporary waiver letters have been sent via postal service to all active authorization holders. Entities that obtain an MSGP authorization starting March 1, 2019, will receive their temporary waiver with their certificate of authorization from the TCEQ ePermits system when they complete the application process. The DMR forms can be downloaded from the Monitoring and Reporting Stormwater Discharges from Industrial Facilities webpage.
