Portland Clean Air (PCA) will be in attendance at our May 2nd, 2019 public board meeting, presenting following board elections. Portland Clean Air has compiled the DEQ Cleaner Air Oregon Chemical Balance Sheets showing total emissions, separately for uncontrolled emissions, and ranked them using the DEQ level I screening of the known health effects of these emissions. Two professional computer programmers volunteered and DEQ checked the work. PCA has also mapped diesel particulate using ODOT 24 hour truck counts. Greg Bourget, Lead Researcher for PCA, will present the data and action planned by a cooperative effort of 35 Neighborhood Associations.
