We’ve recently updated our web site to focus on providing information about the 3,471 Clean Water Act-permitted discharges in Oregon that are administered by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). Of these 3,471 discharges, 336 of them are permitted via what are called individual permits, while the rest (3,135) are permitted via what are called general permits. Of the 336 individual permits, 253 are currently expired.*
