The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality is extending the public comment period for the Cleaner Air Oregon rule-making effort by 30 days.
The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality is extending the public comment period for the Cleaner Air Oregon rulemaking effort by 30 days. The new deadline for submission of comments will be Monday, Jan. 22 at 4 p.m. The extension is provided to allow interested parties to provide a comprehensive review on the proposed rules, which would set health risk limits on pollutants that industrial and commercial facilities emit.
The Cleaner Air Oregon rule-making process was launched by Governor Kate Brown in April 2016, after communities around the state raised concerns about their exposure to potentially harmful heavy metals, chemicals and other pollutants from factories and other industrial and commercial sources. The Oregon Environmental Quality Commission will consider the final rule proposal at its July 12-13, 2018, regular meeting. Oregonians can submit their input online at the Cleaner Air Oregon website, or in writing to DEQ at 700 NE Multnomah Street, Suite 600, Portland OR, 97232, attn.: Joe Westersund.
