Today the Air District's Board of Directors unanimously adopted Regulation 11-18, Reduction of Risk from Air Toxic Emissions at Existing Facilities, considered to be the most health-protective toxic air pollution risk control measure in the nation.

Spare the Air Status

The rule will improve air quality and reduce emissions in communities from stationary air pollution sources, from large facilities such as power plants and oil refineries, to smaller operations like back-up generators and dry cleaners emitting hazardous air pollutants that may cause cancer or other serious health effects. Hundreds of Bay Area facilities will be affected by the rule.
