Adopted rule

Peter Brewer, 541-633-2004
The Oregon Department of Forestry and DEQ recently reviewed the Oregon Smoke Management Plan to evaluate the effectiveness of the smoke management program. As a result, ODF and DEQ are proposing changes to the plan under their respective authority.
ODF is proposing amendments to their smoke management rules under OAR 629-048 and Operational Guidance for the Oregon Smoke Management Program, directive 1-4-1-601, which together comprise the plan.
To incorporate ODF’s amendments into the federally approved Oregon Clean Air Act State Implementation Plan, DEQ proposes amending OAR 340-200-0040.
