arbcombo -- Community Meeting to Discuss the Format for Evaluating and Addressing Non-Cancer Health Effects

Posted: 30 Oct 2007 16:40:24
In June and July 2007, Air Resources Board (ARB) staff
presented to the public draft railyard health risk assessments for seven
railyards located in Southern California. These were prepared
under the 2005 Railroad Agreement between ARB and Union Pacific
Railroad (UP) and BNSF Railway (BNSF). Since then, ARB staff
has been reviewing the comments and incorporating appropriate
changes to finalize the health risk assessments (HRA). ARB staff
expects the HRAs to be completed by November 1, 2007. 

As a separate effort from the HRAs, ARB staff would now like to
meet with air district staff, community members, and the
railroads to discuss the format for evaluating and addressing
non-cancer health effects, especially PM mortality. The date,
time, location, and railyards covered for the meetings are
listed below:

Date:
November 13, 2007 
6:00 p.m. Ė 9:00 p.m.
