Oregon Lumber Industry Concerned about New Emission Rules

Oregon’s Department of Environmental Quality has been working for the past year on a set of rules, known as Cleaner Air Oregon, aimed at regulating emissions produced by industrial facilities.

The new regulations have been drafted and are being presented for community discussion throughout the state. Thursday night, the DEQ met with concerned Coos County residents and industry representatives to take into consideration public comments for the final draft of these new regulations. Around 50 residents showed up for the Thursday meeting to take part in the discussion of new emission regulations.
