Public Notice Draft for the Oakridge 2020 Exceptional Event Demonstration

Wednesday, June 9, 2021

The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), in partnership with the Lane Regional Air Protection Agency (LRAPA), invites the public to submit written comments on the Exceptional Event demonstration for the 2020 wildfire smoke impacts on the Oakridge PM2.5 air quality monitoring data. LRAPA monitors PM2.5 (particulate matter = 2.5 micrometers in diameter) in Oakridge for comparison to the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). Oakridge is currently a non-attainment area for PM2.5, but has low enough levels now where it can become redesignated to a maintenance area. To submit your comments for the public record, send them by mail, fax or email: Margaret Miller, Air Quality Planner 700 NE Multnomah St (Suite 600) Portland, OR 97232 Phone: 503-347-5028 Fax: 503-229-6762 Email: margaret.miller@deq.state.or.us Written comments are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, July 9, 2021.
