AB 2588 Air Toxics "Hot Spots" Program

Feb 22 2011 Environmental and Public Health | Comments Off on AB 2588 Air Toxics "Hot Spots" Program

The Air Toxics "Hot Spots" Information and Assessment Act (AB 2588, 1987, Connelly) was enacted in 1987, and requires stationary sources to report the types and quantities of certain substances routinely released into the air. The goals of the Air Toxics "Hot Spots" Act are to collect emission data, to identify facilities having localized impacts, to ascertain health risks, to notify nearby residents of significant risks, and to reduce those significant risks to acceptable levels. A more general overview of the Act, including links to related legislation, is also available. Some of the "Hot Spots" emissions data is located on the CHAPIS maps.

You can view the California Environmental Protection Agency’s Air Resources Board’s web based tool for checking emissions at http://www.arb.ca.gov/ab2588/ab2588.htm
