Posted: 17 Aug 2011 16:22:51
This a notice that ARB has extended the public comment period for
California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Functional Equivalent
Document (FED) for the Revised 2010 Railyard Commitments.   The
public review and comment period for the FED was originally July
5, 2011 through August 19, 2011.  This public comment period has
been extended, by at least 15 calendar days, to September 6, 2011
at 5:00 pm.  

The Air Resources Board (ARB) staff prepared a Supplement to the
June 2010 Staff Report on Proposed Actions to Further Reduce
Diesel Particulate Matter at High-Priority California Railyards
(BNSF San Bernardino, BNSF Hobart, UP Commerce and UP
ICTF/Dolores).  This report includes updated emissions and health
risk estimates and a CEQA FED.  The FED evaluates the potential
environmental impacts of the proposed project, which is approval
and implementation of the Revised 2010 Commitments between ARB
and Union Pacific (UP) Railroad and BNSF Railway (BNSF).

For more detailed information on how to submit comments see the
Notice at the website listed below.  Copies of the supplement
(including the FED) may be obtained from ARBís Public Information

Diesel exhaust contains a variety of harmful gases and more than
40 other known cancer-causing compounds.  In 1998, California
identified diesel particulate matter as a toxic air contaminant
based on its potential to cause cancer, premature death, and
other significant health problems.
