How do I know if an air permit is required from the AQMD for my business?
Normally, a business which emits 2 pounds or more per day of “criteria” air pollutants or 1 pound per day or more of “toxic” air pollutants will require a permit to operate. Different types of air pollution control devices are also required for different processes depending upon the size of the operation for compliance with the AQMD regulations. Applications may be obtained by downloading from the District Health Department Web site. For further information, please contact one of our environmental engineers at 784-7200 for help with the necessary information for application submittal.
