Public Records Requests

DEQ makes public records available upon request, in accordance with Oregon’s Public Records Law. Some commonly requested publications and information are available from these links:

How to request records from DEQ

If you can’t find what you are looking for on our website, use DEQ's public records request form to request information. Please note that we updated our form on Sept. 9, 2016 and that older versions of our public records request form no longer work.

Fill out the form as completely as possible, which helps us provide you with the information you need.

Complete one records request per street address. Requests with more than one address (for example, 1600 block of SW Smith Street) will be slower to process, as they will require additional information.

We will contact you if we anticipate a fee for your request. DEQ requires payment before making records available. DEQ’s Frequently Asked Questions page provides more information on fees.

If you have already submitted a request, you may check the status of an existing request.
