Division of Air Pollution Control

The Division of Air Pollution Control (DAPC) ensures compliance with the federal Clean Air Act and the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act as part of its mission to attain and maintain air quality at a level that protects the environment and public health.

The division reviews, issues and enforces permits for installation and operation of sources of air pollution and operates an extensive outdoor air monitoring network. The division also oversees an automobile emission testing program to minimize emissions from mobile sources.

This page provides links to information about specific programs.

Air Monitoring

The goals of the Air Monitoring Section are to determine compliance with the ambient air quality standards, to provide real time monitoring of air pollution episodes, to provide data for trend analyses, regulation evaluation and planning, and to provide information to the public on a daily basis concerning the quality of the air in high population areas, near major emission sources and in rural areas.

Asbestos

Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) 3745-20 contains regulations for controlling asbestos emissions from demolition and renovation projects. Ohio's regulations are consistent with U.S. EPA's National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) standards for asbestos.

The regulations require that contractors do several things, such as provide a notification; conduct thorough inspections to determine the presence of asbestos; follow specific work practices; and ensure proper disposal of asbestos-containing material. Read more here.

Compliance

Community Right-to-Know

E-Check

In January 1996, the State of Ohio began a new vehicle emissions testing program, E-Check, designed to identify motor vehicles that emit excessive levels of pollutants into the air. Among the other emissions control options considered by the legislature, E-Check was the most cost-efficient measure to reduce the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that form ground-level ozone, or smog. The program currently tests cars in seven Ohio counties.

To visit the E-Check website please click here.

Emissions Reporting

Described below are three types of annual emissions reports a facility may be required to submit. All of these are due April 15 to report the previous calendar year’s actual emissions. The report requirements are met using one form to avoid duplicate data entry. The form used and manner in which it is completed and submitted to Ohio EPA is determined by the permitting classification of the facility: Title V; Synthetic Minor; or Non-Title V. More information can be found by clicking on the report type.

Fee Emissions Report (FER)

All facilities that are required to apply for and obtain an air pollution control operating permit are required to submit an annual emissions report for estimated actual facility wide emissions of particulate matter (PM), sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), organic compounds (OC) and lead (Pb). An invoice is generated based on the appropriate fee schedule designated in Ohio law. These reporting requirements are in Ohio Revised Code (ORC) 3745.11 and Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) 3745-78-02.

Emissions Inventory Summary (EIS)

All facilities classified as Title V or Synthetic Minor for permitting are required to file a complete EIS. This report includes detailed emissions information as well as data about the egress points where the air pollution is released to the air. Pollutants currently required to be reported in the EIS are: NOx, volatile organic compounds (VOC), sulfur dioxide (SO2), lead (Pb), organic compounds (OC), carbon monoxide (CO), ammonia (NH3), PM-Condensable, PM-Filterable, PM less than or equal to 10 microns (PM10) - Filterable, and PM less than or equal to 2.5 microns (PM2.5) - Filterable. Ohio EPA has the authority under OAC rule 3745-15-03 to request and receive the information from regulated entities. EIS information is provided to U.S. EPA to develop an annual criteria and toxic pollutant inventory pursuant to 40 CFR 51.321.

Emissions Statement (ES)

The ES is required of any facility located in a county that is out of attainment for the National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) for ozone and emits greater than or equal to 25 tons of VOC or NOx during the reporting year. In general, facilities subject to this requirement must submit actual emissions data for NOx and VOC. The ES is required by Clean Air Act section 182(a)(3)(B) and OAC 3745-24.

Permitting

Rules and Regulations

Ohio EPA air pollution regulations are located in the Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) in chapters 3745-14 to 3745-26, 3745-31, 3745-71 to 3745-80, 3745-100 to 3745-105, 3745-108, 3745-109, and 3745-112 to 3745-114. Additional chapters are added as needed to address new laws and requirements related to air pollution control.

State Implementation Plan

The Clean Air Act (CAA) requires states to prepare a State Implementation Plan (SIP) for the attainment and maintenance of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). Ohio's SIP is a set of regulations, policies, and infrastructure designed to assist Ohio is attaining and maintaining the NAAQS for the six criteria pollutants listed in the CAA (ozone, PM2.5, nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, lead and carbon monoxide).

About Us

Air quality in Ohio in the early 1970s was reputed to be some of the worst in the nation. In 1975, there were 44 air pollution alerts. Much progress has been made due to the efforts of Ohio EPA, local air agencies that contract with Ohio EPA, industry environmental professionals and active citizens. It is truly a collaborative effort to achieve clean, healthy air. The following describes some information about the Division of Air Pollution Control (DAPC) as we strive to ensure compliance with the federal Clean Air Act and the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act as part of its mission to attain and maintain air quality at a level that protects the environment and public health.

Mission Statement

To attain and maintain the air quality at a level that will protect the environment for the benefit of all.

History of DAPC and a description of basic functions of the division

With the passage of the 1970 Clean Air Act, air quality standards were established for six National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) pollutants: sulfur dioxide (SO2), particulates (PM), carbon monoxide (CO), lead (Pb), nitrogen oxide (NO) and ozone (O3). These standards were the first step in the move toward cleaning up our air. DAPC was established as part of the formation of Ohio EPA and has developed and performed the following basic functions since the 1970s:

  • Establish and maintain a comprehensive ambient air monitoring network to measure progress in meeting the NAAQS.
  • Conduct special air monitoring and air toxics analysis.
  • Develop state-level air pollution control regulations in support of a federally approved State Implementation Plan (SIP) that also conforms to Ohio law.
  • Issue permits to regulated sources in order to institute enforceable limits on emissions of air contaminants that otherwise would be released to the atmosphere.
  • Conduct inspections and other compliance oversight activities, including pursuing enforcement against permitted or allowable emissions of air contaminants.
  • Administer programs to address emissions from mobile sources including  a vehicle emissions testing program (E-Check) and an anti-tampering program to reduce and prevent excessive levels of pollutants from vehicles into the air that form ground-level ozone, or smog.
  • Administer the Toxic Release Inventory or “TRI”; a database that contains information concerning specific toxic chemical releases, transfers, waste management and pollution prevention activities from manufacturing facilities throughout the United States. This inventory was established under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986 (EPCRA), which Congress passed to promote planning for chemical emergencies, and to provide information to the public about presence and release of toxic and hazardous chemicals in their communities. TRI does not regulate chemical discharges. In Ohio, state authority was granted to the Ohio EPA under the Ohio Right-to-Know Act of 1988.
  • Administer delegated 112(r) Risk Management Plan (RMP) compliance oversight. The intent of section 112(r) is to prevent accidental releases to the air and mitigate the consequences of releases that do occur by focusing on prevention measures on chemicals that pose the greatest risk to the public and the environment. Under these requirements, industry has an obligation to prevent accidents and operate safely. DAPC staff assure compliance with these obligations.
  • Regulate asbestos removal activities to ensure safe asbestos removal.
  • Respond to open burning complaints and provide ongoing compliance activites associated with open burning.
  • Perform technical evaluation and review of any property sought for tax exemption status for the Ohio Department of Taxation. The air and noise pollution control tax exemption program was originally established by legislation in 1963. The program allows companies to receive tax exemptions for the installation of air or noise pollution control property, and is administered by the Ohio Department of Taxation.
  • Provide  administrative and program support to the State Emergency Response Commission (SERC). SERC is made up of nine state agencies: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); Emergency Management Agency (EMA); Attorney General's Office (AGO); Health; Department of Transportation (DOT); Department of Natural Resources (DNR); State Fire Marshal; State Highway Patrol (SHP); and Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO). Additionally, SERC has 10 appointed members: two for Environmental Advocacy; two for Industry Trade Association; three for Fire Fighting; and three for Local/Municipality. Also, two members of the legislature serves as non-voting members.

  • Receive and review permit applications
  • Develop permit recommendations for issuance by Ohio EPA Central Office
  • Conduct facility inspections
  • Respond to air pollution complaints
  • Review open burning and asbestos removal/demolition requests
  • Conduct permit compliance oversight activities (e.g., witnessing stack tests, reviewing/responding to reported air pollution control malfunction episodes, etc.)

Local Air Agency Contractor Activities/Responsibilities

Local Air Agencies are contracted organizations located throughout the state that perform primarily the same functions as the Ohio EPA District offices. These agencies pre-date Ohio EPA and typically are part of a city, county, or health district organization. Although the number of local air agencies has declined since the 1970’s, the current contracted agencies continue to serve a critical role in air monitoring, permitting and compliance oversight in certain areas of the state in addition to performing certain activities directly for U.S. EPA and/or their parent organizations (e.g., indoor air quality). Below are links to the main web pages for each local air agency.
