Department of Environmental Quality

The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality enforces environmental laws to protect human health and the environment. DEQ’s enforcement process is progressive and focuses on working with organizations and individuals to identify and correct problems. DEQ issues civil penalties as part of this progressive process.

The organization or individual must either pay the penalty amount or appeal the violation within 20 days of receiving the notice. There may be several weeks or months delay between the date the notice was issued and the date it was received.

In some cases, violators may resolve a portion of a penalty by funding a supplemental environmental project that improves Oregon’s environment.
