We focus on improving outdoor air quality in Larimer County.

To do this we:

  • Perform ambient air monitoring for carbon monoxide, ozone, particulates-PM10 and PM 2.5
  • Inspect minor stationary sources permitted through the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Air Pollution Control Division
  • We perform CFC compliance inspections
  • Issue open burn permits
  • Investigate air quality complaints

We are not directly involved with the Mobile Emissions Program which regulates automobile emissions and other transportation issues.

Indoor Air Quality is not regulated in private residences.



For businesses that might need air quality permits for their businesses, visit the State Department of Public Health Small Business Assistance Program.
