The Air Quality Program is charged with assessing the Community's airshed and developing a program to address air quality issues. Since 1997, the division has worked to develop a comprehensive air quality program.
Ambient air quality is monitored to ensure compliance with the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for PM10, PM 2.5, and ozone. The program also develops codes and ordinances to establish jurisdictional authority for sources of air pollution within the exterior boundaries of the Community. Additionally, the program participates in regional and national air quality related initiatives and educates the Community about the effects and sources of air pollution.
