In response to Assembly Bill (AB) 617 (C. Garcia, Chapter 136, Statutes of 2017), the Feather River Air Quality Management District is implementing the Community Air Protection Program (CAPP or Program). The Program’s focus is to reduce exposure in communities most impacted by air pollution. FRAQMD staff have been working closely with the California Air Resources Board on implementation of the CAPP, The FRAQMD would also like feedback from community groups, community members, environmental organizations, and regulated industries on their air pollution concerns within their communities. We welcome and encourage your participation in this effort.
