Oregon’s Wood Stove Law, Robert Riensche, Pillar To Post Home Inspection Company


Most of us are now aware of the new Wood Stove Law that went into effect on August 1st, which requires homeowners to remove, destroy and notify DEQ of any uncertified stove at the time of home sale.

 

Rule-making is now underway to help implement this statute, including procedures for home sellers to verify that stoves have been removed and destroyed and how to submit notification to DEQ.  The public has a short window of opportunity give their imput to this process by sending in comments to DEQ.  All comments must be received by DEQ by 5:00 pm October 29, 2010.

 

The comments can be emailed to:heatsmartrule@deq.state.or.us

 

or mailed to:

Dept. of Environmental Quality

811 SW 6th Ave

Portland, OR 97205

or faxed to:

503-229-5675

 

Public Hearings are also being held this month at various locations around the state.

In Portland it is on October 20th, at 6 pm.
