The SacMetro AQMD interacts with the business community in many ways. We regulate businesses with operations that may affect air quality in the region. We also have a grant and incentive program that helps local businesses offset the cost of purchasing new and cleaner equipment. This page contains links to valuable information about rules, permit and compliance requirements, what incentive opportunities are available, how to make payments for fees and fines, how to request public records, and many other useful topics to help you become knowledgeable, stay in compliance and help improve air quality in the Sacramento region.
