Who is the AQMD?

The South Coast Air Quality Management District (AQMD) is the air pollution control agency for all of Orange County and the urban portions of Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties.

Why is AQMD carrying out this study?

Heavy duty trucks are the largest source of NOx in our air basin.  NOx is a primary contributor to ozone and particulate matter formation, both of which have federal and state air quality standards.  In addition, diesel particulate matter emitted from trucks is a known carcinogen.  Because of the predicted growth in trade and subsequent warehouse development, AQMD staff needs more information from existing warehouses to better quantify potential air emissions from high cube warehouses.

How will the information collected from this survey be used?

While any two warehouses may look similar from the outside, the operations inside may vary considerably, leading to a very different rate of truck visits per day.  The information from this survey will be used to identify some of the key parameters that govern these truck volumes.  Ultimately, the predicted rates of truck traffic for different types of warehouses can be used to refine estimated emissions from warehouse activity.

How will AQMD keep the information collected from this survey private?

In order to protect any proprietary data regarding your business operations, any answers you provide will be kept confidential pursuant to AQMD public records request policy.  All data collected from this survey will be aggregated from the hundreds of other businesses taking the survey prior to publishing the report.  No identifying information will be provided publicly regarding business operational practices that may be considered proprietary or private.
