We’ve recently updated our web site to focus on providing information about the 3,599 Clean Water Act-permitted discharges in Oregon that are administered by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). Of these 3,599 discharges, 333 of them are permitted via what are called individual permits, while the rest (3,266) are permitted via what are called general permits. Of the 333 individual permits, 257 are currently expired.*
