2010 Clean Air Action Plan Update

In 2006, the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles voluntarily created and approved the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan. The CAAP, as it is known, provides the overall strategy for dramatically reducing air pollution emissions from port-related cargo movement.

The ports have released the 2010 CAAP Update, as a new, improved version of the CAAP. The ports agreed from the start that the CAAP would be a “living” document that would undergo periodic reviews and updates.

As the first in these planned updates, the 2010 CAAP Update includes long-term goals for reduction of cancer risk and air pollution from cargo movement at the ports. These goals, also known as the San Pedro Bay Standards, establish more aggressive targets for the two-port complex to reduce health risks and further improve air quality.

The Final 2006 Clean Air Action Plan documents (Overview, Technical Report, and Comments Compendium) have been updated based upon input received during the comment period. Note: Several of the CAAP files are very large. We have posted the documents as full text and in sections to facilitate downloading. We also suggest saving the files and opening them from your computer, rather than opening them directly in Adobe Reader from the website. To do this, "right-click" on the links below and "Save Target As" to your computer.
