AB 617 Community Emission Reduction Plan (CERP)
After a year-long effort, South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD, District) has published the draft Community Emission Reduction Plan (CERP) for the three “Year 1” communities within the District that were chosen as part of California Air Resources Board (CARB) Assembly Bill 617 (AB 617). The Year 1 communities are Wilmington, Carson, West Long Beach, San Bernardino, Muscoy, East Los Angeles, Boyle Heights, and West Commerce.
Winter Wet Weather Outlook
The official “rainy season” for Southern California started on October 1 and continues through April 30, 2020. Rainfall events typically begin to arrive in October and continue with more frequency as we get into November and December. That said, we are more than halfway through October and there isn’t much rain in sight through Halloween. With the current above average temperatures forecast to continue well into fall, there may be a late onset of rainfall events for Southern California.
