Comments Off on Minutes, NWDA Air Quality Committee, 3.14.16
Present: Dan Packard, David Arrow, Bob L, Joe Keller, Myriam Alaux, S.Joan Glebow, jorjan Parker, Evan Farnham, Sharon Genasci
First item on the agenda was the question of ESCO’s closure of Plant 1.
It was announced at the NAC (Neighborhood Advisory Committee) meeting that the Plant 1 closure date has not been set. When Sharon questioned ESCO representatives, they said that the plant could still be operating in a year’s time.
ESCO also mentioned that they would like to begin discussions on a new Good Neighbor Agreement for the five years of the next permit. Plant 3 will continue to operate as usual. Mark Morford will continue, as in the last GNA, to serve as ESCO’s lawyer.
Discussion included all the new housing units that have gone up in the ESCO airshed since the last permit, making the need for controls on heavy metals and other pollutants even more important. We discussed the outcome of the last GNA, when our committee was not pleased with the agreement, and wrote a Minority Report to register our dissatisfaction with a 20 per cent reduction in emissions, no opportunity for fenceline monitoring to validate emissions’ levels and no controls at all on Slinger Bay, which is closest to the neighborhood with open windows and ceiling vents.
David Arrow gave a quick update on diesel emissions at the Railroad Station where trains continue to idle. Our committee was refused permission by building managers at two Portland Housing Authority buildings next to the Station, to put monitors on the rooftops to ascertain diesel levels that potentially expose housing residents.
Sharon announced she is showing her film, “What’s In Our Air?” at the Clinton Street Theater on March 21st “ at 7:00 pm. Air quality activists from across Portland will discuss DEQ plans for temporary rules for heavy metals from small art glass factories in SE Portland. The group agreed that Sharon should write testimony, urging ODEQ to write permanent rules for all businesses emitting lead, arsenic, cadmium and other heavy metals that are endangering public health in Oregon.
Sharon Genasci, Chair, NWDA Air Quality Committee
