Cleaner Air Oregon

Cleaner Air Oregon is a proposed statewide program started by Governor Kate Brown in 2016. The goal of the program is to reduce the public health risks from toxic air pollution released from facilities. DEQ and the Oregon Health Authority released draft Cleaner Air Oregon regulations for public review and comment in the fall of 2017. DEQ and OHA reviewed and carefully considered each public comment submitted during this process.
 
On April 10, 2018, Governor Brown signed Senate Bill 1541 into law, which requires revisions to certain conditions in the Cleaner Air Oregon draft rules. As a result, DEQ and OHA made changes in the draft rules required by the law and changes reflecting consideration of comments received in 2017, and other changes that reflect updated thinking on certain program elements.
 
DEQ and the Oregon Health Authority opened a second public comment period from June 25 – Aug. 6, 2018.  Review the updated 2018 rules to prepare for the public comment period. 
 
Cleaner Air Oregon Proposed Rules:
·         Division 245 rules draft
·         Other Divisions rules draft
·         Draft Tables 1-5
