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 members. 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.
