Air Quality Protection

Miami-Dade County works to protect air quality for everybody. This includes monitoring air pollution, making and enforcing air pollution laws, and issuing permits to control air pollution.

Sources of air pollution include paint and body shops, dry cleaners, funeral homes, gas stations, and air conditioning service repair shops. But not only industry is to blame; everybody contributes to air pollution: when you drive your car, start up that lawn mower or weed trimmer, top off when fueling up, fire up the barbecue or use a can of spray paint.

Together we must work together to ensure the air we breathe remains clean and healthy.

Saving you time and money!

Did you know that Miami-Dade County implements many environmental programs for federal and state agencies -- such as air quality regulations to reduce the amount of pollution in the air we breathe? Providing these services locally saves businesses time and money through faster response times and less travel needs. It also allows us to provide personal customer service right in our community.

For more information on environmental permits call 305-372-6789.
