Aliso Canyon - Health Study

South Coast AQMD staff are working to implement the $1 million health study of the impacts of the Aliso Canyon gas leak incident. In late 2017, South Coast AQMD staff conducted a community meeting to solicit input on the health study, and, in February 2018, provided a summary of the feedback received. South Coast AQMD staff established a Health Study Technical Advisory Group (HSTAG), which includes scientists from local, state and federal agencies, faculty from universities, and two community members selected by the Porter Ranch Neighborhood Council (PRNC). The HSTAG is helping to draft the scope of the health study, and will assist in integrating community comments to the draft Request for Proposals (RFP). Results from the health study could help inform the development of other scientific studies to answer any key questions that remain after South Coast AQMD’s study is completed. South Coast AQMD staff will also be working with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health to implement their $25 million health study that was funded through the settlement announced in August 2018.
