Diesel pollution from construction equipment -- Health and economic damage from construction equipment -- Construction pollution impact by region -- Building a cleaner future -- Appendix: Estimating the health damage and economic costs of construction pollution. "Pollution from diesel construction equipment is taking a heavy toll on the health and economic well-being of California residents. This equipment contributes to particulate and ozone pollution that can cause severe cardiovascular and respiratory illnesses, asthma attacks, acute bronchitis, and even premature death. Lagging emission standards and very old equipment have made construction equipment one of the largest sources of toxic diesel particulate matter pollution in the state, necessitating an accelerated cleanup program to protect the health of all Californians.''--Summary from webpage.
