AB&I Foundry Health Risk Assessment Virtual Workshop

Start: Friday, May 07, 2021 5:30 PM Pacific Daylight Time (US & Canada) (GMT-07:00)

End: Friday, May 07, 2021 8:30 PM Pacific Daylight Time (US & Canada) (GMT-07:00)


The Air District and Communities for a Better Environment invite the Bay Area community to participate in a virtual workshop on Friday, May 7, 2021 from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm to learn about how the Air District is implementing its Facility Risk Reduction Program and hear local community voices.

The draft health risk assessment, required by Air District Rule 11-18, indicates that emissions from AB&I Foundry pose an elevated health risk that requires the facility to submit a risk reduction plan to the Air District and reduce air pollution exposure to the surrounding community. The health risks for off-site workers and residences exceed the risk action level of 10 in a million. Toxic metal emissions are the largest contributors to maximum health risks. Most of the toxic emissions are coming from processes that handle molten metal.

The purpose of the workshop is to present, discuss, and receive comments on the draft Health Risk Assessment, or HRA, for AB&I Foundry located in East Oakland.

At the workshop, Communities for a Better Environment will share community members’ perspectives and Air District staff will provide presentations and respond to questions on the draft HRA.
