State Parks would pay up to $1,000 for each day that the amount of dust blowing off Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area exceeds state limits
By David Sneed | dsneed@thetribunenews.com

By a four-vote margin, the county air pollution control board Wednesday approved a new regulation that holds State Parks liable for excessive amounts of dust blowing off Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area.

The rule requires that the state develop a plan to reduce the number of days air quality on the Nipomo Mesa exceeds state standards for particulates. A scientific study concluded that off-highway vehicle riding in the dunes increases the amount of dust coming from the park.

While not trained in dust management, I would suspect that wind would also be a factor in the amount of dust coming from the park.

What are you supposed to do when you see an "endangered" animal eating an "endangered" plant?
