Every breath you take outside is linked to the Air Pollution Control
District. Our experts work to maintain and constantly improve our air
quality. And you can breathe easier knowing it’s the best it has been
in the past six decades.
There are many ways we achieve this. We ensure commercial,
industrial, transportation and agricultural businesses are permitted
and comply with air pollution control laws, and we incentivize cleaner
technologies by offering grant funds. We monitor and record air
quality using a network of equipment stationed around the county, and
alert you to the conditions. Air samples are also tested in the field
Our field staff inspects both permitted and non-permitted sources
of air contaminants and investigates citizen complaints on air quality
matters. We also work to help future generations have clean air
through long-term regional plans to reduce unhealthful pollution
levels and develop air quality rules.
We are here to help you thrive and look forward to serving you.
