Adopted rule

DEQ proposes the Environmental Quality Commission approve rule amendments to its Greenhouse gas reporting rules in division 215 that will:

  • Clarify language and terms in the rule.
  • Update the reference to the federal greenhouse gas reporting rule quantification methodology for use when reporting greenhouse gases from sources with air quality permits.
  • Provide the program with clear investigative authority to collect information from all entities required to report for the purposes of assessing applicability, verifying or investigating either actual or suspected sources of greenhouse gas emissions or to ascertain compliance or noncompliance with rules in this division.
