15 Now, to create and submit a DMR. Select ‘Create a New Report’ on the left
16 You may search for reporting requirements based on various criteria like: Report Type, Report Frequency, Facility Name, Monitoring Start Date, and Report due date
17 The Facility drop down menu will only list facilities which I am associated with. Here, I have just two facilities.
18 For the first example, I will enter a report by hand For the first example, I will enter a report by hand. First, I will choose… Kates Prod Test Facility.

21 A list of reports will appear under the search options. Each report has these 4 icons:
22 The ‘View Form’ will display a printable DMR template.
23 The ‘Excel’ will allow you to download a spreadsheet template for the copy and paste option. I will show you this example later.

28 On the left are monitoring groups, if I have several they will appear in the drop down list. Under the monitoring group is a list of parameters associated with it.One of the enhancements Peter mentioned, are the indicators that appear to the right of each parameter if the fields are left blank or has exceedances. Since we just started this form, all the fields are currently blank and all parameters have a red ‘i’ symbol indicator.
29 Let me scroll down to show you the rest of the form. Like a paper DMR, the form still includes all 5 columns.
