AQMD Rule Proposal 415 Feedback

AQMD Rule Proposal 415 Feedback

Get the smell out of Boyle Heights! Councilmember Huizar requested representatives of the South Coast Air Quality Management District (AQMD) come to a meeting in Boyle Heights at Resurrection Church so that residents could voice their displeasure and need for change regarding the horrible smell that comes out of the five rendering plants in Vernon. 

At the meeting this month, the community was able to provide their comments for the public record and ask questions regarding AQMD's proposal (RP415), which would set new operational standards to reduce odors and provide immediate relief. Part of AQMD's proposal includes permanently enclosing these facilities in the next two to four years. 

The AQMD Governing Board passed the proposal unanimously on Friday, November 3 at their 9 a.m. meeting in Diamond Bar. 

Councilmember Huizar is glad the added publicity and public support for this rule change will have positive results for Boyle Heights and the surrounding communities who have been affected by the odor for decades. Thank you Resurrection Church, community members and groups who've fought for this change for years!
