RAPCA's industrial permit program is centered on the State of Ohio's air pollution permit system. RAPCA works with Ohio EPA to issue air permits for industrial sources of air pollution. Ohio EPA and U.S. EPA define who is required to get an air permit and the rules that must be followed.
Each permit may include have how much pollution a facility is allowed to emit into the air and any 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 the type of enforcement actions to take.
