Commercial Marine Ports Working Group

Facility-Based Mobile Source Measure focused on quantifying the emission reductions already realized for the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach and credit these reductions into the State Implementation Plan (SIP).

About

The Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach are the two busiest marine ports in the nation. Since 2006, the Ports have achieved early emission reductions through voluntary measures adopted in a joint Clean Air Action Plan (CAAP). This measure seeks to quantify the emission reductions realized from the CAAP and credit these reductions into the State Implementation Plan (SIP). 

The latest CAAP Update was approved by the governing boards of the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach (Ports) on November 2, 2017.  During the public review process for the 2017 CAAP Update, the South Coast AQMD staff submitted comments to the Ports governing boards.  These comments detailed specific potential actions and targets recommended for the Ports mobile sources toward achieving the needed emission reductions for meeting the federally mandated ozone standard in the South Coast Air Basin by 2023. Information about the 2017 CAAP Update and the South Coast AQMD comment letter is available below.
