San Pedro Bay CAAP Meeting Rescheduled

By Karen Robes Meeks

The ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach have rescheduled the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan (CAAP) 2017 Update progress meeting to September 26 in Long Beach, California.

Originally set for a week earlier, the meeting will provide the public with the latest progress report on the CAAP Update – a blueprint first enacted in 2005 for curbing port-related pollution through various initiatives and strategies.

Those initiatives, which have included the Clean Truck Program, technology demonstrations alternative fueling and vessel slowing efforts, have resulted in significant reductions in emissions.

The upcoming meeting is open to the public and will take place from 9 to 11 a.m., in the 1st Floor Training Room at the Port of Long Beach Interim Administrative Offices, 4801 Airport Plaza Drive, Long Beach, California, 90815.
