Welcome to the Bureau of Air Quality Planning

It is the mission of the Bureau of Air Quality Planning (BAQP) to protect and enhance the environment in order to sustain healthy ecosystems and contribute to a vibrant economy. Our mission is accomplished through reasonable, fair, and consistent implementation of State and Federal air quality rules and regulations, with emphasis on objective and impartial responsiveness to the needs of a growing population and industrial base.

The authority to implement air pollution control requirements has been established in Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) 445B.100 through 445B.825, inclusive, and NRS 486A.010 through 486A.180, inclusive.

Washoe and Clark counties administer air quality programs within each of their respective jurisdictions. Please note CAPP is regulated by the BAPC throughout Nevada.

Visit our sister agency, the Bureau of Air Pollution Control (BAPC) to obtain information regarding air quality permits for emission units, surface area disturbance permits, regulatory requirements for fossil-fuel fired steam electric plants, and emissions auditing.
