Our Job at the Yolo-Solano AQMD

The Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District is, by law, required to achieve and maintain healthful air quality for its residents. This is accomplished by establishing and enforcing air pollution control rules and regulations in order to attain all state and federal ambient air quality standards and minimize public exposure to airborne toxins and nuisance odors.

The District regulates, permits and inspects stationary sources of air pollution. Among these sources are factories, power plants, gasoline stations, auto body shops and dry cleaners. While the state is responsible for controlling actual tailpipe emissions from vehicular sources, the District is required to implement transportation control measures. These measures are designed to reduce the number of cars on the road and promote the use of cleaner fuels and vehicles. The District also funds a number of important public and private agency projects that provide innovative approaches to reducing pollution.
