Luis Olmedo is the Executive Director of Comite Civico
del Valle, an organization that focuses on environmental
health issues in the farm worker communities of the Imperial
and Coachella Valleys. For 13 years, Luis has advised local,
regional, and state programs on environmental health issues
affecting rural communities in California. He has also been
involved in litigation at the local level to force government regulators to more effectively protect residents from air pollution. With his experience advocating for environmental justice on behalf of stakeholders most affected by the QSA, his view on issues of air pollution and its effect on local communities will bring an essential voice to the panel.
Mr. Olmedo is speaking on panel 1A, The Quantification Settlement Agreement: A Salton Sea of Problems.
