Continuation of Public Hearing - Amendments to the California Air
Pollution Emergency Plan.
The California Air Pollution Emergency Plan provides a basis for
taking action to warn the public when adverse air quality is
anticipated and establishes a mechanism for prevention or
abatement of such episodes. The Plan is reviewed regularly to
reflect new information regarding health hazards, changes in air
quality and abatement methods.
The proposed amendments consist of revisions and additions to
include airborne sulfates as a pollutant for which control
actions are required at a certain level, extend the areas
included under the Plan, to append health protective measures for
additional pollutants and to add specific episode control actions
to reduce emissions of sulfur compounds and hydrocarbons. The
control actions are primarily directed to the reduction of fuel
oil combustion and organic emissions from stationary sources.
Copies of the amended plan will be distributed at the meeting.
