Portland General Electric (PGE) Violating Federal Clean Air Standards
October 06, 2010
The US Environmental Protection Agency Says PGE Must Clean Up Dirty Boardman Coal-fired Power Plant: Portland General Electric has received a Notice of Violation from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) stating that PGE’s pollution levels at the Boardman coal-fired power plant are illegal under the federal Clean Air Act. This notice arrives on the heels of months of public comment to state-level agencies in which overwhelming public support was expressed for transition off-coal at Boardman at the earliest possible time in a way that also maintains strong air quality standards.
