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

Posted: 17 Nov 2008 16:27:21
On March 19, 2008, Air Resources Board (ARB) staff presented to
the public the draft railyard health risk assessment (HRA) for
the Union Pacific Railroad Oakland 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 April 22, 2008.

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

UP and ARB staff would now like to meet with community members
and air district staff to discuss UPís initial draft railyard
mitigation plan.  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.
