Public Records Requests

Check the status of an existing request.

Oregon’s Public Records Law grants the public the right to access public records.

DEQ makes many of its publications and information available online. Some frequently requested information may be available from these links:

You may also request records from DEQ.

Note - 9/9/2016: To provide better customer service, DEQ has updated our Records Request Form. Please use the new online form below. We no longer accept older versions of the form.       

The first step in requesting records is to complete and submit a Public Records Request Form

Fill out the form as completely as possible so that we can provide you with the precise 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. You can find more information about fees in our Requesting Public Records from DEQ: Frequently Asked Questions.
