The ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach have released the 2010 San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan (CAAP) Update, which sets even more aggressive goals and strategies for reducing air pollution and health risks from goods movement.
The draft 2010 CAAP Update was released in April. This final version of the 2010 CAAP Update incorporates comments and changes and is scheduled to be considered for approval in a joint meeting of the two ports' boards of harbor commissioners:
- Wednesday, Oct. 6, at 2 p.m.
- Banning’s Landing Community Center, 100 E. Water St., Wilmington 90744.

, the complete 2010 CAAP Update
, and "Response to Comments"
document. A synopsis of significant changes
has been added to show the main differences between the draft CAAP Update and the final version.
The original CAAP and the 2010 CAAP Update were developed with significant input and collaboration among the ports, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, California Air Resources Board and South Coast Air Quality Management District.
The Port of Los Angeles and the Port of Long Beach are the two busiest U.S. seaports, moving $300 billion in trade each year and supporting more than 500,000 jobs in Southern California.
