CERP: Eastern Coachella Valley will be breathing easier
COACHELLA – (INT) - The California Air Resources Board has approved a Community Emissions Reduction Program (CERP) for the Eastern Coachella Valley.
This is the second CERP approved by the board in the Salton Sea region and the fifth brought forward by the South Coast Air Quality Management District.
Residents living in low-income communities in the northern area of the Salton Sea have been breathing air polluted with emissions from diesel-powered vehicles, dust from recreational off-roading and the area surrounding the Salton Sea, open burning and illegal dumping, and pesticide applications.
