Air Permitting

Our responsibility is to the citizens of the Commonwealth, ensuring that all air permits are issued in a manner consistent with our mission to protect public health; to the regulated community, ensuring that regulatory standards are applied in a meaningful, fair and practical manner, and to the vibrant and precious natural resources of Virginia.

Our office provides information on air permitting, hazardous air pollutants, air pollution dispersion modeling, pollution control technology, and federal and state air pollution standards. Asbestos related questions should be directed to the Department of Labor and Industry.
