On behalf of several grassroots community groups, the Environmental Law and Justice Clinic at Golden Gate University School of Law issues this report to publicize the Bay Area Air Quality Management District’s permitting and enforcement practices that insufficiently protect the public against harmful air pollution, including particulate matter (PM) and toxic air contaminants.

The Clinic’s investigation focused on the Air District’s oversight of three companies operating on Port of San Francisco-owned properties at Piers 92 and 94 in the City of San Francisco: CEMEX Construction Materials Pacific, LLC (CEMEX), Central Concrete Supply Co., Inc. (Central), and Hanson Aggregates Mid-Pacific, Inc. (Hanson). CEMEX and Central operate concrete batch plants, and Hanson operates sand and aggregate offloading facilities. The Clinic’s findings, however, may extend beyond the three companies to the Air District’s practice for all pollution sources in its nine-county jurisdiction.
