Asbestos is a fibrous mineral naturally occurring in ultramafic rock (a rock type commonly found in California ), and used as a processed component of building materials. Due to the fact that asbestos has been proven to cause a number of disabling and fatal diseases, such as asbestosis and lung cancer, it is strictly regulated based either on its natural widespread occurrence, or in its use as a building material.

Board of Directors

The Air District is governed by a 22-member Board of Directors. State law provides that the number of representatives from each county will be determined by that county's population. Under this plan, the counties of Marin, Napa, and Solano have one representative; Sonoma, and San Mateo have two representatives; San Francisco has three representatives; and Alameda, Contra Costa, and Santa Clara each have four representatives. The Board has the authority to develop and enforce regulations for the control of air pollution within the Air District. All rules and regulations must be passed by a majority of the Directors. Public hearings are required prior to any action adopting or amending rules and regulations.

The Board of Directors has 8 standing committees that assist the Air District in its mission to improve air quality.

All Board correspondence and inquiries may be submitted to Sean Gallagher, Clerk of the Boards at sgallagher@baaqmd.gov, or by calling 415-749-5073. All correspondence must be submitted at least 24 hours prior to a Board meeting in order to be presented at that Board meeting.
