The Air Compliance and Enforcement Branch uses all compliance tools and resources available to improve air quality by ensuring that all air pollution sources are in compliance with all state and federal air pollution laws, rules and permits. Voluntary compliance and pollution prevention are used when working with the regulated community.
The branch determines compliance of regulated sources of air emissions by inspecting, monitoring, testing, and reviewing records. Three sections of the branch have compliance and enforcement managers that conduct inspections, respond to complaints, provide compliance assistance to sources and provide input on permits and rules. These sections also inspect and review asbestos abatement. The fourth section, Compliance Data, reviews and approves stack tests, continuous emissions and opacity monitors. All sections coordinate with the four IDEM regional offices.
