Barrio Logan – On October 27, 2022, Environmental Health Coalition issued the following statement in response to the San Diego Air Pollution Control District (SDAPCD) Hearing Boards decision to grant New Leaf Biofuel a Stipulated Amendment Order that allows them until December 9, 2022 to install an air odor control system.
“Barrio Logan residents are asked once again to wait for clean air. EHC is disappointed with the SDAPCD Hearing Board’s decision to allow New Leaf to continue polluting the neighborhood with its putrid smell. While residents suffer nausea, headaches, and sore throats, New Leaf will continue to profit. SDAPCD must enforce the abatement order. After a year of waiting for relief, Barrio Logan residents will not tolerate any further extensions.“
