November 20, 2013
Dr. Barry Wallerstein
South Coast Air Quality Management District
21865 Copley Dr.
Diamond Bar, CA 91765
Dear Dr. Wallerstein:
I ask that the South Coast Air Quality Management District (South Coast) exercise all available authorities to suspend AllenCo operations due to severe symptoms experienced by families, including children in the University Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.
I know that South Coast has issued many warnings and fines to this AllenCo facility. Unfortunately, the University Park community has continued to suffer unacceptable health effects.
After writing AllenCo's President two letters, I received his response (attached) stating: "We welcome the ongoing diligence of the South Coast Air Quality Management District and other regulatory agencies as they independently and collaboratively work to identify the type and source of any harmful emissions in this area."
They missed the point. The point is that we cannot allow children and families to continue to suffer. Please let me know how you plan to address these unacceptable conditions.

Regional Administrator for Region 9
