Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Virginia has incorporated by reference the federal NSPS and NESHAP requirements, many of which contain source-specific standards for the control of fugitive emissions. See the national section FUGITIVE EMISSIONS for more information.

Virginia has its own regulations for fugitive emissions that follow the federal regulations. The state's regulations primarily focus on fugitive, visible, and odorous emissions from both existing and new sources. In addition to the general requirements, there are many source-specific fugitive emissions standards that may be more stringent.

Administration and enforcement. DEQ's Division of Air Quality is authorized to administer and enforce the state's air pollution control regulations, including those dealing with fugitive, visible, and odorous emissions.
