Data and Information Management Branch - Public Records Requests

Consistent with the State of Nevada's Public Records statute (NRS 239), all public books and public records not determined to be confidential will be made available for public view or copy. State law only requires public agencies to provide data in the format typically used by the agency for that public record; the agency is not obliged to reformat records to suit the needs of the requestor.

Commonly Requested Air Program Information

The Data and Information Management Branch provides a service to retrieve data requested as part of a public records data request. Reports containing some commonly requested information can be downloaded as excel documents using the following links:

Active permits as of March 30, 20171

2015 Actual Emissions1

1Reported emissions are a public information resource provided by the NDEP. †The State of Nevada makes every effort to ensure that published information is accurate and current.† Neither the State of Nevada, nor any agency, officer, or employee of the State of Nevada warrants the accuracy, reliability or timeliness of any information published on this website, nor endorses any products or services linked from this system, and shall not be held liable for any losses caused by reliance on the accuracy, reliability or timeliness of such information.† Portions of the information are subject to revisions, corrections, and updates.† Any person or entity that relies on any information obtained from this system does so at their own risk.

Additional Information

Additionally, the US EPA has available a query tool for their National Emissions Inventory (NEI). Information on Nevada industries with Air Quality Operating Permits and their annual emissions (Point sources), as well as smaller sources (NonPoint) and mobile sources (OnRoad and NonRoad data categories) can be obtained by using the query tool.

Use this Query Form to retrieve selected facility data from the EPA's Envirofacts national environmental database systems.

If additional public records information is required, the requesting party can arrange to review the records in person by calling (775) 687-4670. Records can be reviewed during normal State of Nevada business hours at our Carson City office. In accordance with NRS 239.0107 the Division shall respond to written or oral requests to review records within five business days of receipt by either:

  1. allowing the person to inspect or copy the requested records;
  2. indicating a date when the records will be available to be inspected or copied; or
  3. notifying the requestor in writing that the requested records are confidential and providing a citation of the statute that declares the record to be confidential.

Division Copying Policy

The Division will provide up to 50 copies of records at no charge. The Division charges $0.20 per page for copy jobs over 50 pages; there is no charge for governmental entities. These charges also apply to requests to scan records to an electronic format. However, there will be no charge for copies of records that are readily available in an electronic format and are provided in an electronic format. At the Divisionís discretion, copying jobs may be taken to a commercial copier with arrangements for the commercial copier to pick-up and return records and to directly bill the requestor of the copies.
