(06/06/03) Beginning on June 10, 2003, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will hold three public hearings on the proposed nonroad diesel announced on April 14, 2003. These new emission standards are for nonroad diesel engines used in construction, agricultural and industrial operations and would achieve a reduction in particulate matter and nitrogen oxide levels of more than 90 percent.
