Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Connecticut is authorized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to administer its own air emissions permit program. Connecticut has developed a Title V operating permit program that mirrors the current federal standards. The state program has received approval from EPA effective May 31, 2002. EPA has also approved a Title V permitting threshold for greenhouse gas emissions that is consistent with the current federal requirements. See the national section TITLE V for more information.

Administration and enforcement. DEP's Bureau of Air Management is authorized to administer and enforce all air pollution permitting regulations in Connecticut.
