Water Quality Permits

​​​​

The EQC adopted rule amendments in July 2020, to increase water quality fees. New fees will be on invoices starting in August 2020, to cover costs associated with implementing the permitting program and delivering services to regulated entities.

The fee increase was a total of 21% which will be implemented in two phases. Phase one is effective Aug. 1, 2020 and equals a total of 13%, that is 3% authorized by statute (ORS 468B.051) and 10% to support new program positions authorized in the 2019-2021 Legislatively Adopted Budget. The second phase becomes effective on July 1, 2021 and is for 8% that also supports new program positions authorized in the 2019-2021 Legislatively Adopted Budget. Please note that the fees from the following permits were excluded from the 13% and 21% increase as noted below:

  1. UIC Fees authorized by Rule
  2. WPCF 2401 and 2402
  3. 700PM fees authorized by Oregon Revised Statute 468B.118
  4. MS4 annual permit fees – excluded from the 18%, but not the 3% allowable by statute.

To learn about future fee increases, please sign-up for text or email updates about the Water Quality Division online and select Water Quality Fees and other topics related to DEQ Water Quality.

In light of COVID-19 related economic uncertainty and potential hardships for some entities subject to the proposed fee increases, DEQ will identify relief options under consideration, including availability of installment plans. Pursuant to OAR 340-045-0070(2)(c), entities experiencing a demonstrated severe economic hardship may seek annual payment deferral options (installments) from DEQ.
