LA PINE, OR -- The state Department of Environmental Quality will hold a public hearing Tuesday evening to review a permit for a proposed biomass plant planned for the La Pine area. The plant, which Biogreen wants to build on Reed Rd., would generate electricity by burning wood materials from forest management activities. The plant is expected to generate about 24 MW of electricity. The DEQ air quality permit would limit the amount of air pollution the plant would be allowed to produce.

Tuesday's meeting is set 6 p.m. at the La Pine Senior Activity Center at 16450 Victory Way.
