Facilities that generate and discharge wastewater face a long list of monitoring and reporting requirements. Staying in compliance requires precise monitoring and analysis of a variety of water quality indicators at each discharge point throughout each of your facilities and timely reporting of discharge data to federal, state, and local resource management agencies.
However, collecting accurate water quality data can be an extraordinary challenge. In addition to physical sampling and monitoring activities, you are also required to perform complex loading rate calculations for a wide range of water quality indicators. Manually entering the data and performing required calculations using spreadsheets or paper forms requires time and effort you can’t afford, and leaves you at substantial risk for errors and inconsistencies.
The difficulty increases when submitting your discharge monitoring reports (DMRs) to EPA and other resource management agencies, or when documenting your compliance with international environmental standards like ISO 14001. You need verify that each measurement and calculation was performed using approved analytical methods, and in done in compliance with your discharge permits. The reports then need to be formatted for submission to EPA and other agencies’ electronic reporting systems. Failure to provide complete and accurate reports can result in severe fines and penalties.
