Air Quality

Air Quality Standards

Under the Federal Clean Air Act, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) establishes health-based air quality standards that all states must achieve. The California Clean Air Act also establishes requirements for cities and counties to meet. The South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) develops plans and regulations designed to achieve these public health standards by reducing emissions from business and industry. SCAQMD’s Governing Board adopts plans and regulations for the region and then submits them to the California Air Resources Board and the Federal EPA.

Air Quality Management District (AQMD) is the air pollution agency for the South Coast areas including Orange, Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Bernadino counties.

Electric Vehicle Fueling Stations

As gas prices continue to rise, along with an ongoing need to preserve and protect the environment, more people are looking into alternative energy vehicles for their transportation needs.

Southern California Edison offers helpful information for those considering electric vehicles through its EV Readiness Site. This website outlines everything a buyer needs to know before bringing one of these cars home, including interactive tools, educational fact sheets, and videos to help electric vehicle buyers prepare.

The U.S Department of Energy has created an Alternative Fueling Station Locator to assist the public. There are two locations in the Malibu Civic Center area for charging.
23525 Civic Center Way- 3 dedicated spaces
3835 Cross Creek Road- 1 dedicated space
