  • Governor committed to 20% by 2014.

  • 1000 deaths and 68,000 asthma cases each year from exceeding standard.

  • Current focus is on diesel.

  • ConnDOT is requiring all contractors and sub-contractors to take part in the Connecticut Clean Air Construction Initiative.

  • In summary, the following contractor requirements apply:

    • Emission control devices (such as oxidation catalysts) and/or clean fuels (such as PuriNOx) are required for:

    • Diesel-powered construction equipment, with

    • Engine horsepower (HP) ratings of 60 HP and above, that are

    • On the project or assigned to the contract in excess of 30 days.

    • Truck staging zones will be established for diesel-powered vehicles waiting to load or unload materials. The zones will be located where diesel emissions will have the least impact on abutters and the general public.

    • Idling is limited to three minutes for delivery and dump trucks and other diesel-powered equipment (with some exceptions).

    • All work will be conducted to ensure that no harmful effects are caused to adjacent sensitive receptors, such as schools, hospitals, and elderly housing.

    • Diesel-powered engines will be located away from fresh air intakes, air conditioners, and windows.
