We’ve recently updated our web site to focus on providing information about the 3,729 Clean Water Act-permitted discharges in Oregon that are administered by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). Of these 3,729 discharges, 351 of them are permitted via what are called individual permits, while the rest (3,378) are permitted via what are called general permits. Of the 351 individual permits, 283 are currently expired.*
*Current as of July 22, 2018 at 7:11 PM. Unless otherwise noted, figures on this site are based on OCWAP’s most recent query of Oregon DEQ’s database. OCWAP queries this database once a day after 5 PM Pacific Time.
