Resources At Risk
Impacts to Air Quality
The document states the project will have small amounts of particulate and fugitive materials released. However, the diesel-equipment oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emissions or Toxic Air Contaminants (TACs) are not quantified. Depending on the duration of time and type of equipment used, NOx and TACs could be significant. Emissions should be quantified and compared to the District’s thresholds of significance for construction emissions.
LandWatch engages in the public process in a variety of ways. For this project, here is a list of our engagement strategies.
