Special meeting of the Oregon Environmental Quality Commission
April 24, 2020: Teleconference
DEQ will propose rules for Hazard Index values used in the Cleaner Air Oregon Program.
DEQ will propose rule amendments for the Title V General Permit Program.
DEQ will propose temporary rule amendments to align Oregon's regulations with a federal waiver of fuel volatility requirements. The federal waiver allows for an extended phase-in schedule of annual fuel volatility requirements, to May 20 instead of May 1.
DEQ will propose temporary rules allowing deferral of certain DEQ-issued licenses and certificates. The deferral would require individuals and organizations to obtain the renewals either by 60 days after the Oregon State of Emergency is lifted or by Oct. 15, 2020, whichever date is earlier.
DEQ will present an informational update about agency activities and operations affected by COVID-19.
Commissioners will have an opportunity to provide updates on their recent activities of interest to the commission and DEQ.
The commission is expected to adjourn by 11:30 a.m.
