arbcombo -- Community Meeting to Discuss UP's Initial Draft of the Commerce Railyard Diesel PM Mitigation Plan

Posted: 30 Sep 2008 12:27:58
On May 23, 2007, Air Resources Board (ARB) staff presented to the
public a draft railyard health risk assessment (HRA) for the
Union Pacific Commerce 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 November 2, 2007.

Consistent with the Agreement, Union Pacific then began the
process to develop an initial draft of the Commerce railyard
mitigation plan, with ARB staff providing consultation and
technical review on the calculations of emissions and
feasibility of control measures.  This is Union Pacificís
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.

Union Pacific and ARB staff would now like to meet with
community members and air district staff to discuss Union
Pacificís initial draft of the Commerce 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.
