arbcombo -- Public Workshop on June 25, 2008 to Discuss the Draft Revised Methodology of Estimating PM2.5-Related Premature Deaths Posted: 06 Jun 2008 16:07:02
At the May 22, 2008 Air Resources Board meeting, staff released a draft report on the revised methodology for estimating premature death associated with long-term exposure to fine airborne particulate matter (Fine PM) in California. This new methodology and results will be discussed in detail at a public workshop on: June 25, 2008 10:00 am to 12:00 noon Sierra Hearing Room (2^nd floor), Cal/EPA Headquarters 1001 I Street, Sacramento, CA In the draft methodology, staff has incorporated new health information that relates changes in PM2.5 exposures to premature death and developed a new relative risk of a 10% increase in premature death per 10 mg/m3 increase in exposure. Staff also recommended that a range of 7 mg/m3 to 2.5 mg/m3 be used as the lowest level of PM2.5 that can be associated with the increased risk. In the report, staff also updated the ambient air quality database to years 2004-2006. The draft methodology has undergone peer review by a panel formed by the University of California, Berkeley. Details regarding the new methodology can be found in the staff report titled “Methodology for Estimating Premature Deaths Associated with Long-Term Exposures to Fine Airborne Particulate Matter in California, Draft Staff Report, May 22, 2008”, which can be downloaded from this website: http://www.arb.ca.gov/research/health/pm-mort/pm-mort.htm Paper copies of the staff report are also available and may be requested by email or regular mail at the addresses listed below.
