The mission of the department is to develop and implement high-quality, effective local programs to fulfill air quality regulatory requirements and address community concerns, thereby protecting the region’s quality of life while facilitating orderly growth.

Stationary source air permits, including Title V permits, are issued through the Permitting Division. 

The Compliance and Enforcement Division regulates sources of air pollutants to minimize adverse impacts on the community and environment. 

The Planning Division is responsible for preparing studies and plans to show how Clark County will comply with the national ambient air quality standards.  It also compiles and maintains the emissions inventory and conducts emissions modeling.
