PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality announced Wednesday a major overhaul to modernize its public records request system.
"Responding to records requests is a top priority, and DEQ is modernizing to better serve the public," the announcement said.
Here’s what the public can expect with the new system:
• Personalized online accounts
• View details, status and message history for all requests and download the documents directly once posted.
• Online fee payments
• Email notifications when there are new messages or documents available
• Searchable public records archive for previously requested records
DEQ will fulfill all requests that are still in process through our old system.
