Port of Los Angeles:

Contacts:       Rachel Campbell, Port of Los Angeles, 310-732-3498
                Art Wong, Port of Long Beach, 562-590-4123

What:           The ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, in
                cooperation with the U.S. Environmental Protection
                Agency, the California Air Resources Board and the
                South Coast Air Quality Management District, have
                developed the most comprehensive plan in U.S. seaport
                history to reduce air pollution and associated health
                risks generated from port-related operations (ships,
                trucks, trains, terminal equipment and harbor craft).
                The San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan will be
                released Wednesday, June 28, for public review and
                comment. The plan proposes hundreds of millions of
                dollars in investments by the ports, the state, air
                quality regulatory agencies and the port-related
                industry to cut air pollution and dramatically reduce
                health risks over the next five years.

                The San Pedro Bay Ports are the two busiest and most
                economically critical container ports in the nation -
                a gateway for more than 40 percent of the nation's
                containerized cargo.
