Rulemaking

Adopted rule

Phase One - Adopted

Administrative Order No. DEQ 189-2018
Filed and effective July 13, 2018
See Oregon Bulletin August 2018

 

Phase Two - Adopted

Administrative Order No. DEQ 12-2019
Filed and effective May 16, 2019
The Environmental Quality Commission approved rules to increase Title V permit fees for 2018 and 2019 by the change in the consumer price index as authorized by the federal Clean Air Act and state law, including:
  • Annual base fees assessed to all Title V sources regardless of emission quantities;
  • Emission fees assessed per ton of emissions from individual sources per calendar year; and
  • Specific activity fees assessed when a source owner or operator modifies a permit.
The adopted rules increased fees in two phases. This approach saved administrative costs by holding a single public notice and comment period for two rulemakings. The adopted fee increase effective for invoice year 2018 is 1.99 percent based on the Bureau of Labor Statistics September 2017 consumer price index for the period September 2016 to August 2017. The adopted fee increase for invoice year 2019 is 2.42 percent based on the Bureau of Labor Statistics September 2018 consumer price index for the period September 2017 to August 2018.
