Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Kentucky has incorporated by reference the federal NSPS and NESHAPs, which contain source-specific standards for the control of fugitive emissions. In addition, DEP has developed its own nuisance requirements and regulations for the control of fugitive particulate emissions.
• Administration and enforcement. DEP's Division for Air Quality administers and enforces the state's fugitive emissions regulations. The Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control District administers and enforces air quality requirements within its jurisdiction.
