Air permits

An air emission permit is a legal document that describes how a facility is meeting federal and state air quality regulations. It contains legal conditions that are enforced by both the state and federal governments.

An air emission permit contains information on all sources of air pollution at a facility. For example, if an owner of a small manufacturing shop uses solvents to clean parts, the cleaning process is a source of air pollution and would need to be described in the air emission permit.
