arbcombo -- Community Meeting to Discuss BNSF’s Initial Draft of the San Bernardino Railyard Diesel PM Mitigation Plan

Posted: 16 Sep 2008 14:31:39
On May 8, 2008, Air Resources Board (ARB) staff presented to the
public a draft railyard health risk assessment (HRA) for the
BSNF San Bernardino Railyard. This HRA was prepared under the
2005 Railroad Agreement between ARB and Union Pacific Railroad
(UP) and BNSF Railway (BNSF).  ARB staff reviewed public
comments and incorporated appropriate changes to finalize the
HRA on June 11, 2008.

Consistent with the Agreement, BNSF then began the process to
develop an initial draft of the San Bernardino railyard
mitigation plan, with ARB staff providing consultation and
technical review on the calculations of emissions and
feasibility of control measures.  This is BNSF’s initial draft
railyard mitigation plan which has not been approved or endorsed
by the ARB, but provides a starting point for discussions with
community members.  

BNSF and ARB staff would now like to meet with community members
and air district staff to discuss BNSF’s initial draft of the San
Bernardino railyard mitigation plan.  This process will allow the
public to discuss the control measures in the draft plan, and to
identify additional control measures to further reduce the risks
identified in the HRA.
