RAPCA's industrial permit program is centered on the State of Ohio's air pollution permit system. RAPCA works with Ohio EPA to recommend and issue air permits for industrial sources of air pollution. Ohio EPA and U.S. EPA define who is required to get an air permit.
Each permit will have how much pollution a facility is allowed to emit and what kinds of testing, record keeping, and reporting they must do. RAPCA inspects these facilities to make sure they are meeting their permit requirements and if they are not, we work with Ohio EPA to determine what kind of enforcement actions to take.
