Ports Answer Comments on CAAP Update

October 19, 2010

The ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles have released a Supplemental Response to Comments on the Final 2010 San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan (CAAP) Update. The response document follows up on comments made at the Oct. 6 joint meeting of the two cities' boards of harbor commissioners on the CAAP.

Harbor commissioners at that meeting postponed their vote until November. The 2010 CAAP Update is expected to be back for consideration at a joint commission meeting in November.

Since adoption in 2006, the original Clean Air Action Plan has initiated a wide range of air pollution-reducing measures for the ships, trains, trucks, and other heavy machinery used to move about $300 billion worth of freight through the nation’s largest seaport complex each year.

See the 2010 CAAP Update Fact Sheet, the complete 2010 CAAP Update, and "Response to Comments" document and a Supplemental Response to Comments. A synopsis of significant changes shows the main differences between the draft CAAP Update released in April and the final version released in September.

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.
