Report on the Phase Down of Rice Straw Burning in the Sacramento Valley
The Rice Straw Burning Reduction Act of 1991 requires the Air Resources Board and the California Department of Food and Agriculture to report biennially to the Legislature on the progress of the phase down of rice straw burning in the Sacramento Valley. The draft report includes an economic and environmental assessment; the status of feasible, cost-effective alternatives to rice straw burning; and recommendations from the Advisory Committee on Alternatives to Rice Straw Burning which was established under the Act. No regulatory action is being proposed.
|97-7-2||Public Meeting to Consider a Status Report on the San Joaquin Valley
Fine Particulate Matter Study
This item will be a status report on a collaborative study involving three levels of government and stakeholders from various regulated industries in the San Joaquin Valley. The study, which has been under way since 1991, is designed to improve understanding of the factors that affect ambient concentrations of fine particulate matter. This information will ultimately provide decision-makers with the ability to select control technologies that will attain the standards at the least cost. The study is estimated to cost $27.5 million, and it will include a one-year field data collection phase in 1999-2000.
