Air Quality Source Permits
Stationary source permits are issued to industries and facilities that emit regulated pollutants to ensure that these emissions do not harm public health or cause significant deterioration in areas that presently have clean air. The permit also ensures that facilities make adequate provisions to control their emissions. The criteria for deciding if any new proposed facility or any change to an existing facility requires a permit are contained in the Clark County Air Quality Regulations. The Permitting Division of DAQ performs permit application reviews, applicability determinations, and issues air permits based on the location of the facility in the County.
Depending on the size of the facility and the amount of emissions produced, stationary sources can be either major or minor sources.
The unitary permitting program for minor sources requires that facilities that emit criteria pollutants above the minimum permitting threshold obtain a permit. These permits may include limits on both construction and operation activities. A person must apply for the permit before starting construction or operation of any emitting equipment. An application is made by submitting the original copy to DAQ with the applicable fee.
The new source review program requires that industrial sources install good pollution control technology when they construct or significantly modify their facilities.
