Staff Informational Update at March 2018 Board Meeting
At the March 2018 Board Meeting, staff provided an informational update on actions to minimize emissions and community health impacts from freight facilities. This update described staff’s evaluation of potential concepts to reduce emissions from large freight facilities, including Indirect Source Review (ISR) rules and other measures capable of achieving similar levels of emission reductions. Staff proposed a path forward with additional CARB regulations and other actions, beyond those included in the State Implementation Plan (SIP), to further cut emissions. Such actions may require earlier implementation in the most impacted communities or regions. Finally, staff proposed to provide an annual update to the Board on freight activities to reflect the latest developments.
Staff provided revised advance materials prior to the March 2018 Board Meeting for discussion purposes.
