  • Report: Power plant major Columbia Gorge polluter

    By Jeff Barnard
    Grants Pass, Oregon (AP)

    A new report indicates that Oregon’s only coal-fired power plant is responsible for half the particulate pollution in the Columbia River Gorge when air quality conditions are at their worst.

    Year-round, the 28-year-old Portland General Electric plant at Boardman contributes an average of 14.9 percent of the fine particles gathered at a federal air quality monitoring site in the gorge, the report found. But in November, when east winds push the air downstream along the Columbia River, the proportion spikes to 55.5 percent.
