Good afternoon, NIOA members! A quick note to update you on a couple of things:

March NIOA Training

 Good Afternoon!

On Wednesday, March 9th, NIOA Training will be at the Huntertown Fire Hall, 15412 Lima Road, Huntertown, IN 46748. I somehow missed including the date in my email earlier this week, my apologies for the confusion...

NetDMR - Notice of Possible Training Opportunity

IDEM has been contacting a number of WWTP's to continue encouraging the implementation & use of NetDMR for monthly reporting. Regardless of your feelings about this, your community will be required to use NetDMR by the end of next year. Some IDEM folks are pushing to have communities submitting NetDMR reports by the end of this year - this is a request, not a requirement, FYI. The deadline for transitioning to NetDMR is the end of 2016.

Great Lakes CSO Prohibition Language in FY2016 Funding Bill

Good morning, NIOA members! At yesterday's training, one of the things that we discussed was language in Section 428 pf the Senate Appropriations Committee FY 2016 spending bill. If passed, Section 428 will prohibit all CSO's within the Great Lakes Watershed. After 2035, POTW's will be fined $100,000 for any CSO's, regardless of the intensity and/or duration of the storm event. The financial costs are tough to estimate at this point, but would be extremely high.

With summer here in full force, I know that schedules are busy, but there are some things we want to make sure you are aware of.
