What We Do
The Division of Air Quality (DAQ) works with the state's citizens to protect and improve outdoor, or ambient, air quality in North Carolina for the health, benefit and economic well-being of all. To carry out this mission, the DAQ operates a statewide air quality monitoring network to measure the level of pollutants in the outdoor air, develops and implements plans to meet future air quality initiatives, assures compliance with air quality rules, and educates, informs and assists the public with regard to air quality issues.
Update For Permit Applicants
DAQ is no longer accepting permit applications and reports from facilities via the firstname.lastname@example.org email account. These documents should instead be sent to your regional office supervisor.
