Money for air pollution reduction projects in Coachella Valley is OKd

February 3, 2012 | 10:21 pm

Officials plan a spate of new air pollution reduction projects in the Coachella Valley after a multimillion- dollar funding package was approved Friday by the regional air quality agency.

The board of the South Coast Air Quality Management District voted to spend up to $53 million on the projects, funding that will come from mitigation fees paid by the operators of the CPV Sentinel Energy Project, a power plant under construction in Desert Hot Springs.

Through early June, the AQMD will seek proposals from the community on potential projects, according to a news release.

The money could be spent on projects ranging from paving dirt roads and developing parkways to installing electric car charging stations and buying new school buses.
