Division for Air Quality

The Division for Air Quality is one of six divisions in the Department for Environmental Protection that is part of the Energy and Environment Cabinet. We are here to serve you, whether you are a permit holder, a technical or legal consultant, a member of an environmental organization or a citizen interested in what we do.

Our division emphasizes good stewardship of our environment. Air pollution should be prevented or reduced whenever possible. In addition to our air monitoring and permitting programs, we work with counties and local communities to find strategies to reduce air pollution. The division also offers free air quality education and outreach to all ages and audiences. Please contact the many dedicated employees of our division if we can be of service to you.
