Rules & Regulations
The Lane Regional Air Protection Agency (LRAPA) was established under Oregon Statute 449 (now 468.A) and approved by the Oregon Sanitary Authority (now Environmental Quality Commission), effective January 1, 1968, to exercise the functions vested by statute within the boundaries of Lane County. LRAPA implements Lane County’s air quality regulations through its rules and related programs. LRAPA’s rules closely mimic those from the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). Changes to DEQ’s rules usually result in subsequent changes to LRAPA’s rules because LRAPA’s rules cannot be less strict than DEQ.
LRAPA seeks public involvement during the rule development process by conducting informational meetings, holding public hearings, and inviting public comment.
All LRAPA’s rules are publicly available on this page, divided by each Title. A fully searchable combined PDF of all LRAPA Rules and Regulations is placed at the bottom of this page.
