Harbor officials say efforts to reduce air pollution at the Port of Los Angeles are working.
Authorities on Monday say diesel particulate levels dropped 7 percent last year compared to 2012 – an 80 percent reduction since 2005. Nitrogen oxide levels also dipped 7 percent _ a 57-percent reduction from 2005 _ and sulfur oxides fell 8 percent – down 90 percent in eight years.
City News Service says harbor officials credit the use of cleaner-burning trucks at the port and speed restrictions on cargo ships to reduce smog from their engines.
