These series will provide a regulatory perspective geared towards entry level associates on how the SCAQMD works.
The 2016 Air Quality Management Plan (AQMP) is a regional blueprint for achieving the federal air quality standards and healthful air. The South Coast Air Quality Management District is responsible for clean air in the South Coast Air Basin, an area that includes Orange County and the non-desert portions of Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino counties. While air quality has dramatically improved over the years, the Basin still exceeds federal public health standards for both ozone and particulate matter and experiences some of the worst air pollution in the nation. The 2016 AQMP represents a thorough analysis of existing and potential regulatory control options, includes available, proven, and cost-effective strategies, and seeks to achieve multiple goals in partnership with other entities promoting reductions in greenhouse gases and toxic risk, as well as efficiencies in energy use, transportation, and goods movement. The Plan recognizes the critical importance of working with other agencies to develop funding and incentives that encourage the accelerated transition to cleaner vehicles, and the modernization of buildings and industrial facilities to cleaner technologies in a manner that benefits not only air quality, but also local businesses and the regional economy. These “win-win” scenarios are key to implementation of this Plan with broad support from a wide range of stakeholders.
