Rumors have it that INTEL has been allowed to treat their huge parking lot next to the DIX fab plant as a "temporary" lot for 10 years. This allows Intel to avoid making infrastructure improvements required of a permanent parking lot.
This may be another example of - "whatever INTEL wants - INTEL gets."
I have several questions: If there was a deal - who made it - the City of Hillsboro or Washington County? Is this legal? When did 10 years become "temporary?"
Does this mean water run-off from the DIX construction site will spill into the local ground water of those living in the Orenco Station area adjacent to the DIX plant?
Is this another unreported emissions issue resulting from electeds signing another "non-disclosure" agreement with INTEL?
Is Clean Water Services monitoring water run off or just rubber stamping INTEL's actions just like DEQ does?
