Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Delaware is authorized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to administer its own air emissions permit program. Facilities are required to obtain an approval to operate before beginning operations. Major sources must obtain a Title V permit and are subject to separate permit requirements and fees. The Delaware Title V operating permit program follows the federal provisions, including provisions establishing greenhouse gas permitting thresholds, and received full approval from EPA.

Administration and enforcement. DNREC's DAWM is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the state's operating permit program.
