Air Quality & Monitoring


Welcome to DAWM's Air Quality and Monitoring topical page


In Delaware, the majority of air issues are handled by the Air Quality Management Section, which:

  • Monitors and regulates all emissions to the air 
  • Issues “permits to construct” and “permits to operate” to air contaminant sources
  • Maintains emission inventories from business and industry 
  • Develops the State Implementation Plan as required by the Clean Air Act
  • Adopts new regulations and enforce existing regulations and permits
  • Inspects asbestos removal sites
