The four metal forging facilities in Paramount – Carlton Forge Works, Press Forge, Mattco Forge, and Weber Metals – are now in compliance with SCAQMD’s Rule 1430 requirements.
The City will continue to closely monitor the three businesses’ progress toward reducing air emissions.
In September 2017, a Paramount resident spoke at a Paramount City Council meeting about witnessing a metal forging company in the southern industrial region of town performing pressure washing on its rooftop.
In a move supported by the Paramount City Council and active voices in the Paramount community, the South Coast Air Quality Management District’s Governing Board today adopted a measure that will reduce metal particulate emissions, some of which are air toxic contaminants, from metal grinding and metal cutting operations at forging facilities.
The South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) will meet on Friday, February 3, 2017 to confirm the set date of March 3, 2017 for the Board Hearing of Proposed Rule 1430.
The Paramount City Council has sent a letter to the South Coast Air Quality Management District urging that SCAQMD adopt Rule 1430 related to metal grinding.
