South Coast AQMD and U.S. EPA Tour Communities Impacted by Goods Movement

On June 22, 2022, South Coast AQMD joined U.S. EPA Region 9 Regional Administrator Martha Guzman on an environmental justice tour of communities impacted by goods movement.

The tour featured areas of the Inland Empire that are affected by the goods movement industry, including a newly approved rail line in San Bernardino, a proposed new rail yard in Colton, and warehouses in Fontana and Bloomington. Discussion focused on potential actions to reduce air pollution including regulatory actions and the need for cleaner technologies for warehouses and railyards. Wayne Nastri, South Coast AQMD’s Executive officer joined Guzman in discussions with community groups including the Sierra Club, the People’s Collective for Environmental Justice, and the Center for Community Action and Environmental Justice in this engaging conversation about environmental justice.
