NPDES Electronic Reporting Rule Meeting

US EPA has scheduled a meeting to discuss the NPDES Electronic Reporting Rule.
With this rulemaking, EPA hopes to improve management and performance of the NPDES program by requiring electronic reporting of NPDES information from regulated facilities. This will reduce the burden for facilities to report to regulatory agencies and for states to report to EPA.

This meeting will be used to discuss electronic reporting alternatives for submission of NPDES information directly to states and/or EPA from permittees. Topics include the feasibility of requiring electronic reporting in areas such as electronic discharge monitoring reports (eDMRs), electronic notice of intent (eNOI), and electronic program reports. The purpose of this meeting is to give interested parties the opportunity to discuss the proposed rule and to provide feedback.

The meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 13, 2010 from 1 - 3 p.m. The meeting location is Room 1117A EPA East, 1201 Constitution Ave., NW., Washington, DC 20460.
