The Proof is in the Permit: How to Make Sure a Facility in Your Community Gets an Effective Title V Air Pollution Permit - Did you know that large industrial facilities must obtain government-approved permits both before they are built and when they begin to operate? These permits protect our health by telling the facility how much it must cut back its polluting emissions, what kinds of air pollution control technology it must use, and what kinds of monitoring and record-keeping it will use to make sure it's doing what it's supposed to. These permits are the "guidebooks" used by the facility, regulators, and the public, to ensure that our Clean Air laws are being followed.
