Compliance Assistance

​The SacMetro AQMD has a Compliance Assistance Program (CAP) to help any business or organization understand air quality rules to reduce air pollution in Sacramento County.  This resource offers solutions to both technical and general questions.  By contacting CAP staff, issues can be addressed quickly and efficiently. 

The CAP is designed to offer assistance to all sectors of the regulated community.  Many businesses can benefit from this program including coating operations, gasoline stations, wood product manufacturers, asphalt and concrete batch facilities, construction operations and facilities operating boilers and internal combustion engines.  See our Compliance Assistance brochure for additional information.

Compliance Assistance Hotline

The Compliance Assistance Hotline, (916) 874-4884, is designed to answer questions regarding compliance with air quality regulations, including:

  • Do I need a permit for my business?
  • What SacMetro AQMD  rules and permit requirements apply to my business?

Facility Review

You may request the SacMetro AQMD to conduct a facility review at your business.

This is a non-regulatory inspection conducted by SacMetro AQMD staff.

The purpose of the facility review is to provide on-site education to businesses on the particular air quality regulations affecting their operations in order to prevent future violations.

​Compliance Assistance Brochures

Below are links to several brochures designed to assist businesses, individuals and other interested parties in understanding air quality regulations.

​Compliance Education Opportunities

As needed, the SacMetro AQMD  provides programs, sometimes in collaboration with other agencies, to assist businesses in a classroom environment. In these settings business owners and their employees are invited to learn about air quality compliance, the implications of being out of compliance and innovative approaches to pollutant emission reductions. For further information please contact Teresa Posey at (916) 874-4884 or e-mail tposey@airquality.org.
