Permits

your DEQ onlineWe are modernizing the way we accept, process and share information at DEQ. This is an important and exciting upgrade to the way we do business, both internally and with the public. Our new Environmental Data Management System, which we’re calling Your DEQ Online, will provide an easy and intuitive online system for connecting to DEQ.
 
Over the next two years, many of DEQ’s regulatory programs will move online. Our goals for Your DEQ Online are:
 
  • To make our services more accessible to our stakeholders and the public
  • To save applicants time and resources on application submissions
  • To streamline DEQ processes and reduce the ongoing costs of collecting and maintaining submission data
  • To provide faster turnaround time for issuing licenses/certifications/permits
  • To meet federal electronic reporting standards
  • To improve transparency and management of publicly available environmental data

Ultimately, Your DEQ Online will make it easier for Oregonians to work with DEQ.

Investing in a healthier and cleaner Oregon

Whether we are implementing Cleaner Air Oregon, improving our water quality permitting program or making environmental data more readily available, Your DEQ Online will provide better service to support communities across the state.
 
Your DEQ Online will create opportunities for greater understanding of how pollution sources affect our communities and the environment. This also helps DEQ partner with other agencies, the regulated community and the general public to fulfill our mission: to protect, restore and enhance our environment.

​Why the change?

The activities and industries we regulate, along with the general public, need better access to information, faster turn-around times and easier payment methods. We are working to meet those needs.

Who benefits?

Regulated Communities – This online system will bring our application, payment and reporting processes into one online platform. Our clients will be able to submit applications and renewals, make electronic payments, track status of projects and communicate with DEQ quickly and easily through a single portal.
 
Public – Much of the information stored in the new online system will be readily available and accessible with a few key strokes. This offers immediate access to a large amount of environmental data.

 

Next steps?

Regulatory programs will move into the new online system in phases. DEQ will connect with affected businesses and communities to help them transition into using Your DEQ Online. Additional resources will also be provided to help the public access information from the system.

How can I find out more?

Here is a fact sheet with some additional information. As we get closer to starting the new system, watch for announcements about information and training sessions.
