EPA to Hold Two Public Hearings on Proposed Clean Air Standards for Particle Pollution

 Speaker registration now open for hearings in Philadelphia and Sacramento, Calif.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will hold two public hearings on the proposed updates to the national air quality standards for fine particle pollution (PM2.5). A federal court ruling required EPA to update the standards based on best available science. The proposed updates, which meet that requirement, build on steps already taken by EPA to reduce pollution in communities across the country.


WHAT:             Public hearings on proposed updates to national air quality standards for fine particle pollution.


WHEN:             July 17, 2012 (Philadelphia) 9:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. EDT   
                        July 19, 2012 (Sacramento) 9:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. PDT


WHERE:           July 17, Philadelphia

   William J. Green Federal Building
   600 Arch Street

                        July 19, Sacramento, Calif.
