Adopted rule

Administrative Order No. 10-2016
Filed and effective Oct. 3, 2016
See Oregon Bulletin, November 2016
Joe Westersund, 503-229-6240
Air toxics emissions from certain types of industrial businesses like colored art glass manufacturers are not fully regulated under federal requirements. Based on monitoring DEQ undertook last October, and more recently, DEQ has concluded that uncontrolled furnaces used in such colored art glass manufacturing may emit potentially unsafe levels of certain metals, including arsenic, cadmium, hexavalent chromium and nickel. This rulemaking is intended to protect the public health and the environment by ensuring the air emissions from colored art glass manufacturers do not cause unsafe levels of metals emissions in the air nearby.

EQC adopted temporary rules on April 21, 2016 and this proposed rulemaking will make those rules permanent.
