The Air District recently completed its Mobile Source Compliance Plan (MSCP). The Plan lays out the comprehensive strategy for enforcement of specified California Air Resources Board (CARB) Air Toxic Control Measures (ATCMs) and related mobile source statutes and/or agreements (collectively termed “rules”). The MSCP is a “living” document and will change as needs arise and as mobile source rules are revised and augmented. For some of these rules, District implementation has been underway for a few years. The Air District has prioritized its current and planned MSCP efforts based on the overall level of emissions and their contribution to elevated health risks posed by a particular mobile source category.
BAAQMD is the first in the state to enter into a comprehensive mobile source enforcement partnership agreement with CARB. By implementation of this MOU and the Compliance Plan, the Air District will reduce diesel particulate matter exposures, provide leadership on mobile source enforcement, and improve air quality for communities in the Bay Area.
