Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC)

Air Pollution Control Division (APCD)

Comparison: State vs. Federal

· Rules. Sources of air contaminants in Vermont emitting above the specified threshold must register with DEC on an annual basis. Sources subject to the Title V program must comply with Vermont’s operating permit program, which is similar to the federal program but has significantly lower major source thresholds.

The Vermont operating permit program received final full approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) effective November 30, 2001. EPA has also approved a Title V permitting threshold for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that is consistent with the federal requirements. See the national section TITLE V for more information on Title V operating permits for sources of GHG emissions.

· Administration and enforcement. DEC’s Air Pollution Control Division is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the state's air emissions permit program.
