We’ve recently updated our web site to focus on providing information about the 3,468 Clean Water Act-permitted discharges in Oregon that are administered by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). Of these 3,468 discharges, 348 of them are permitted via what are called individual permits, while the rest (3,120) are permitted via what are called general permits. Of the 348 individual permits, 273 are currently expired.*
*Current as of December 14, 2018 at 6:43 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.
