|Subject||Proposed Amendments to the Airborne Toxic Control Measure for Chromium|
Many communities around California are overburdened by hexavalent chromium, as the slides shown today have demonstrated. The use of these toxic chemicals can cause serious health problems for workers and local residents alike. Switching to trivalent chromium has the benefit of not only significantly reducing the toxic emissions of one of the most dangerous chemicals known in our communities but facilities using trivalent chromium avoid having to use other toxic fume suppressants as well. Respectfully I, urge the board to take this important action in the Chrome Plating ATCM now, to gain early reductions in the many communities affected by the decorative chrome platers.
