REGULATION VI - AIR POLLUTION EMERGENCY

CONTINGENCY PLAN



RULE 601 - General Statement - Adopted 1974, Renumbered 5/89

I. This emergency plan is to provide the basis for taking action to prevent air pollutant concentration from reaching levels which could endanger the public health or to abate such concentrations should they occur. The air quality in some areas frequently does not meet ambient air quality standards. While remote, the potential exists for air pollution in these areas to reach hazardous concentration. The Kern County Air Pollution Control District has the primary responsibility for taking necessary action to curtail polluting activities and should the episode become so severe that it is beyond the control capabilities of the local district, the State may be requested to take action to alleviate the condition.
