Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Kansas has adopted by reference the NESHAPs, including the source-specific NESHAPs known as maximum achievable control technology (MACT) standards. Kansas has no additional state emissions standards for HAPs. However, the state requires sources of HAPs to be properly permitted. See the state sections AIR EMISSIONS PERMITS, NEW SOURCE REVIEW, and TITLE V for more permitting information.
• Administration and enforcement. The HAP requirements are implemented and enforced by KDHE's Bureau of Air with assistance from the Wyandotte County-Kansas City, Kansas Health Department's Department of Air Quality. See the state section AIR (REGULATORY OVERVIEW) for additional information on the local air pollution control agency.
