ARB Workshops Will Discuss Community Health Impacts of Freight Operations
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has announced a
series of workshops to discuss ways to reduce the negative
community health impacts of freight operations. The discussions
will focus on the health impacts of seaports, railyards, and
warehouses/distribution centers and ways to transition to a
cleaner, more efficient and modern freight system. CARB will be
hosting community meetings with residents living nearby freight
operations later this month.
CARB’s freight-related activities support the implementation of the recently passed AB 617 (C. Garcia 2017), which establishes a program to measure and reduce air pollution from mobile and stationary sources at the neighborhood level in the communities most impacted by air pollutants.
