LA/LB to Offer Clean Air Update

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach will update the public on the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan 2017 Update’s progress on June 25 in Wilmington.

It is the second of four meetings to discuss the CAAP 2017 Update, the latest version of the twin ports’ original 2006 blueprint for addressing the environmental impact of maritime business operations.

The update calls for a number of ambitious emissions-curbing measures, including a goal to lower greenhouse gases “40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030 and 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050.”

The meeting is set from 10 a.m. to noon on June 25 at Banning’s Landing Community Center, 100 E. Water St., Wilmington, CA 90744.
