City of Los Angeles Oil & Gas Drilling Ordinance Technical Studies and IS/MND

The proposed Citywide Oil and Gas Drilling Ordinance proposes to prohibit new oil and gas extraction and make existing extraction activities a nonconforming use in all zones. For the project, Impact Sciences prepared air quality and greenhouse gas analyses which required estimations of the air quality benefit from eliminating oil extraction in the city. Our team also prepared the noise technical report and an IS/MND. The project was on a fast-track schedule with an aggressive timeline to get the ordinance to the City Council before the next election.
