Agenda: Air Pollution Control Board Meeting

The agenda (currently tentative) for the State Air Pollution Control Board Meeting in Richmond on November 8-9, 2018, is now posted on the meeting section of the Department of Environmental Quality Web page – on that page, click on the Meeting Agenda link. Note that the first page (of 70!) of the tentative agenda is blank except for the short sentence at the top saying it is tentative; that will probably change when the final agenda is posted.  Details on location and time of the meeting are on our Events page.  This is a critical meeting, where the Board will consider the air permit for the proposed ACP compressor station in Union Hill.

A related and timely article, Air pollution is the new tobacco. Time to tackle this epidemic, published in The Guardian on October 27, 2018, discusses air pollution and the upcoming World Health Organization First Global Conference on Air Pollution and Health, which will be held in Geneva, Switzerland, October 30 – November 1, 2018.
