Air District Permits

Air pollution control districts (APCD) or air quality management district (AQMD) issue permits and monitor new and modified sources of air pollutants to ensure compliance with national, state, and local emission standards and to ensure that emissions from such sources meet ambient air quality standards adopted by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The types of pollutants that require permits can vary from district to district, so each permit applicant must go through the application and review process to determine proper compliance. This is where ARC Enterprises can help.

 Companies operating stand-by generators and who produce air emissions that contain one or more listed pollutants must apply for permits. In general, permits apply to the following:

  • Stationary sources of air pollutants such as standby generators, paint booths, and internal combustion engines fixed in one location.
  • Selected portable sources, such as air compressors, generators, concrete pumps, drill rigs, pile drivers, rock drills, abrasive blasters, etc.
  • Agricultural activities.
  • Selected mobile sources such as motor fleets, portable engines and certain other types of equipment.

 Whether constructing a new facility or operating equipment and devices requiring an air pollution control permit, ARC Enterprises has the expertise to help you easily obtain the necessary permits to conduct business.
