Main activity: South Coast Air Quality Management District policies and programs
The South Coast Air Project deals with air quality and public health issues at the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD). The District enforces some of the most stringent air pollution control regulations in the world, making real progress towards reducing harmful emissions in the second most populated urban area in the United States. The goal of the project is to work directly with the SCAQMD to continuously improve the region’s air quality and public health. Project members are represented at numerous proceedings and in stakeholder groups of the District, including the Air Quality Management Plan (AQMP) Advisory Committee, Budget Advisory Committee, Home Rule Advisory Committee, Regional Clean Air Incentives Market (RECLAIM) Working Group, Permit Streamlining Task Force, AQ-Spec Advisory Committee, Multiple Air Toxics Exposure Study (MATES) advisory group, and other priority issues.
