2016 PM2.5 Moderate Area Plan

On October 20, 2016, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) conducted a public meeting to consider the San Joaquin Valley Unified Air Pollution Control District’s (District) 2016 Moderate Area Plan for the 2012 PM2.5 Standard (2016 PM2.5 Plan).  The Board directed ARB staff to conduct several workshops in the San Joaquin Valley to assess opportunities for further reductions from stationary and mobile sources.  CARB staff will prioritize reductions that can happen in the near-term and assess long-term reductions that can be implemented prior to 2025.  ARB staff will report back to the Board in February with recommendations and next steps for continued strategy development.
