Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Georgia requires facilities that have the potential to emit air pollution to obtain an operating permit. Major sources are required to obtain a Title V operating permit from DNR. The state's Title V operating permit program, which received full approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), follows and in many cases, adopts by reference, the federal program, including provisions establishing greenhouse gas permitting thresholds. Georgia offers permits-by-rule for selected source categories willing to comply with established restrictions.

For more information on nonmajor source operating permits, see the state section AIR EMISSIONS PERMITS.

Administration and enforcement. The Stationary Source Permitting Program within the Air Protection Branch of DNR's Environmental Protection Division is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the state's air permitting regulations.
