Good air quality is important for human health and the environment. The DNR both monitors the state's air quality and implements regulations to improve and protect it. The department measures concentrations of many different air pollutants at monitoring sites located throughout the state. If air pollution reaches unhealthy levels, DNR issues air quality advisories and special notices to inform the public. The department also implements a variety of regulations and programs to limit air pollution, including ambient air quality standards, air permits and mobile source controls.
