    Abstract

    The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is conducting a national quality assurance program known as the Discharge Monitoring Report Quality Assurance Program (DMRQA). Facilities holding permits under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) have been sent two sets of audit samples to analyze for permit-required parameters. EPA Region VIII permittees have performed on the average better than other permittees participating nationally in DMRQA Studies One and Two. Follow-up on DMRQA Study One included phone calls, letters, and inspections. Permittee performance in Study Two has improved as a result of Study One follow-up activities. Study Two follow-up will be more extensive than Study One and is currently underway.
