Cleaner Air Oregon Review: Focus on 4 N/NE Facilities

On 10/26/21, Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods and North Portland Neighborhood
Services will host a public meeting to address the concerns about air toxics and health risk
from four North and Northeast Portland Industrial Facilities. These industrial sites are
currently in evaluation by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) through
the Cleaner Air Oregon Program. Clustered along the North edge of Portland, along the
Columbia River, the sites are located in three neighborhoods: Cully, Kenton, and St. Johns.
Cleaner Air Oregon is a DEQ program that regulates emissions from industrial and
commercial facilities based on health risks to surrounding communities. There are four
facilities in North and Northeast Portland in various stages of the Cleaner Air Oregon
permitting process. DEQ will present information about the Cleaner Air Oregon program,
provide details on each facility, and describe how community members can be involved.
DEQ staff will compare the 4 facilities and share reports on new air toxics and health risk
data, updated CAO time frames, and identify opportunities to engage in the process.
