Southern California air quality regulators have approved stricter regulations to reduce dust and toxic chemicals coming from two cement plants in the Riverside area.

The South Coast Air Quality Management District Board amended a rule on Friday to require the cement plants to cover piles of material with tarps and build wind barriers.

The plants include TXI Riverside Cement in Rubidoux and California Portland Cement in Colton.
