The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Wednesday honored the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach with a Clean Air Excellence Award for their plan to reduce air emissions from port-related sources.

The twin ports in the Los Angeles area are among 11 winners of the EPA award, which recognizes innovative efforts to achieve cleaner air.

"This year's Clean Air Excellence Award winners' dedication to creating a cleaner tomorrow is truly a breath of fresh air," said EPA Administrator Stephen Johnson.

"From local to state governments, companies to citizen groups, these award winners are helping EPA deliver healthier air and healthier lives to all Americans,"

The Los Angeles and Long Beach harbor commissions approved two years ago the Clean Air Action Plan, a blueprint to reduce port-related pollution by 45 percent by 2011. The two ports make up the largest and busiest port complex in the United States.
