Started with EzDMR
How do you get started?
Already Registered Users
- in the DEP Business Portal do not need to register again. If
you require a PIN because you are submitting an electronic DMR and do
not have one, proceed to Step 2, otherwise sign into the portal and
proceed through the steps for your facility type: Industrial and
Domestic Wastewater Facilities or NPDES Stormwater Facilities (available
December 16, 2016) outlined below.
New Users to the DEP
Business Portal must register before beginning. Proceed to
Step 1 to complete registration.
Step 1. Register in the DEP Business Portal
the Business Portal!
- On the Portal Welcome page, click the blue
near the upper right-hand corner of the page.
- The registration form will appear and must be completed before
clicking the Register button found at the bottom
of the screen.
- A verification email will be sent with an embedded link,
which should be clicked to complete the registration and email
address verification process.
Step 2. Request a Personal Identification Number (PIN).
This number is the Certifierís
electronic signature and, like their password, should be kept in a
secure place and not shared with others. Only a Certifier, an
individual who submits a report on behalf of a facility, must apply
for a PIN. At the end of the registration process outlined above, the
User is given the opportunity to secure a PIN, by clicking on the
you may apply here link
located on the E-mail Verification Complete screen. It can also be
requested at any time by left mouse clicking on your username located
on the upper right corner of the screen.
- On the PIN Request page, five security questions must be
established. Each time a report submission is made, the Certifier
will be asked to answer one of these questions.
- Once completed and the Generate PIN Application
button is clicked at the bottom of the page, an Electronic
Subscriber Agreement (ESA) is emailed to the applicant.
- This ESA form should be printed, completed, notarized, and
mailed to the address listed on the form. Remember, if you already
have a PIN because you conduct business in the portal, you should
not apply for another PIN.
- Once the ESA is received by the Department and processed, an
email from Ďnoemail@example.comí will be sent with the Userís
PIN. To ensure this email reaches the Userís inbox, this email
address should be added to the Userís contact list or address
- In the email, the User will need to click the embedded link to
finalize and activate the PIN.

Official, Corporate Officer and/or Authorized Representative
and they are listed as such in the Departmentís Wastewater
Facility Regulation database (WAFR), they can request the
Authorized Representative role. The DARís primary function is
to approve the requests of a Certifier to submit electronic
reports on behalf of a facility. They can view templates, but
cannot enter data or submit reports.
Permitting staff must be notified of any personnel changes that
would affect the permitting or compliance process, including email
addresses. If this is not updated in a timely manner, it could
affect the report submission process.
- Once a role is selected, the User must associate their access
request with a facility or facilities. In the Request Access Role

facility for which access is needed. Upon clicking on the search
button, a list of requested facilities will be generated. Click on the
Request Role box to the right of the facility, then on the Request
Role button below it. The requested facility templates can now be

facilityís DAR to submit a report and DARs must be listed in WAFR to
automatically be approved.
