arbcombo -- Community Meeting to Discuss BNSF’s Initial Drafts of the Hobart, Commerce-Eastern, and Sheila Mechanical Railyards Diesel PM Mitigation P

Posted: 30 Sep 2008 12:37:45
On May 23, 2007, Air Resources Board (ARB) staff presented to the
public the draft railyard health risk assessments (HRA) for the
BNSF Hobart, Commerce-Eastern and Sheila-Mechanical Railyards.
These HRAs were 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 these HRAs on November 2, 2007.

Consistent with the Agreement, BNSF then began the process to
develop an initial draft railyard mitigation plan for each
facility, with ARB staff providing consultation and technical
review on the calculations of emissions and feasibility of
control measures.  These are BNSF’s initial draft railyard
mitigation plans which have not been approved or endorsed by the
ARB, but provide a starting point for discussions with community

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