What We Do

Our Air Quality Program is the local air pollution control authority that works collaboratively with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment Air Pollution Control Division.

We are responsible for sampling our air at various monitoring locations in the valley, issuing open burning permits, complaint investigation and response, issuing air watch alerts, and maintaining certifications for opacity and odor evaluations.
