Identifying and Reducing Diesel Pollution from Stationary Sources in Low-Income and People-of-Color-Neighborhoods


Printer-friendly version

The overall goal of this project is to improve the health of Oregonians in the Portland metropolitan urban area by significantly reducing diesel pollution from stationary sources. We will focus our work on diesel pollution that heavily impacts the communities at greatest risk: the lower-income Albina community, children, and the elderly.

The work will build on OEC's prior, EPA-funded "Healthy Albina" environmental justice project, which included a broad review and analysis of environmental health threats in the low-income, people-of-color Albina neighborhood of North Portland, and which identified diesel pollution as a primary health concern. It will aslo complement - and feed into - Oregon's recently adopted state Air Toxics rules, which create a nationally significant effort to reduce hazardous pollutants in local "hotspots" by engaging the local community. And this project will be closely integrated with other ongoing efforts to reduce diesel pollution from mobile sources.
