Locus software automates DMR reporting

In response to demands to streamline Discharge Monitoring Report (DMR) reporting under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) program, Locus Technologies has expanded its Environmental Information Management (EIM) software to automate the generation of DMR reports.

Locus’ EIM DMR solves the problem of manual report generation by completely automating the process. The NPDES requires that permit holders report self-monitored pollution results with a DMR. These reports are often due monthly, and collecting and reporting information such as analytical chemistry of pollutants, flow velocity, total maximum daily load, and other parameters make generating DMRs time-consuming. For companies that have to report on 100 or 1,000 facilities, manually producing a DMR also becomes a major expense.

Thanks to Locus’ new software offering, once arranged in EIM, companies can generate DMRs within minutes in the approved formats using validated data. Companies can set up EIM for all permitted facilities and realize immediate cost and time savings during each reporting period. Relevant data are directly uploaded to the system, reviewed and validated, then reported in the proper formats.

Locus’ SaaS EIM lets companies manage and organize all their water-quality data on a larger and more comprehensive scale using cloud-based computing and storage. This replaces spreadsheets and local, homegrown databases typically used to generate DMRs. Locus’ enterprise software model also employs mashups—applications that integrate data or functionality from multiple sources or technologies.
