Mendocino County Air Quality Rules and Regulations

Picture of air pollution in Los Angeles in 1968, before the Clean Air Act was passed in 1970, and after in 2005.

Air Districts in California must develop regulations based on the measures identified in the Clean Air Act and its Clean Air Plan as well as state regulations. New rules are developed and existing rules are amended to ensure reduce emissions in compliance with these federal and state regulations as well as protect and improve public health, air quality and the global climate.

Rule Development is the process Air District staff uses to write regulations that govern stationary sources of air pollution. It involves technical research, engagement with affected stakeholders, public meetings to allow input by affected parties such as industries and communities, and the preparation of CEQA and socio-economic analyses, where required.

New rules are reviewed and adopted by the Air District’s Board of Directors and are then enforced via Air District Permit and Inspection programs.
