We’ve recently updated our web site to focus on providing information about the 3,339 Clean Water Act-permitted discharges in Oregon that are administered by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). Of these 3,339 discharges, 350 of them are permitted via what are called individual permits, while the rest (2,989) are permitted via what are called general permits. Of the 350 individual permits, 286 are currently expired.*
*Current as of January 16, 2018 at 6:48 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.
