Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. DEP's Bureau of Air Quality is responsible for administering and enforcing Pennsylvania's air pollution rules. Pennsylvania's air program is shaped by its SIP, which sets forth basic strategies for implementation, maintenance, and enforcement of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). As mandated by the Clean Air Act (CAA), each state must adopt and submit a SIP to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for approval.

Administration and enforcement. Pennsylvania's air program is implemented and enforced by DEP's Bureau of Air Quality. Both the Allegheny County Health Department and Philadelphia Air Management Services have been granted authority to oversee the administration and enforcement of local air quality regulations, as well as DEP regulations, within their jurisdictions.
