EPA To Hold Two Public Hearings on PM2.5

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.

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, Philadelphia, Pa. 19106

July 19, Sacramento
California Air Resources Board, 1001 "I" Street, Sacramento, Calif. 95814
