Citizens can still weigh in on Intel permit

The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has extended the public comment period for those wanting to offer testimony regarding the proposed new air quality permit — known officially as a Title V permit — for Intel’s semiconductor manufacturing plants in Aloha and Hillsboro.

DEQ has extended the comment period until Monday, Oct. 14. Intel’s manufacturing processes and boilers emit air pollutants, including greenhouse gases.

DEQ is proposing increased plant site emission limits for volatile organic compounds, fluorides and greenhouse gases due to a large expansion currently under way at Intel.

Comments are due by 5 p.m. Submit testimony by mail to: AQ Permit Coordinator, DEQ Northwest Region, 2020 S.W. Fourth Ave., Suite 400, Portland, OR 97201; by fax to: 503-229-6945; or by email to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
