Photograph of Lynn FiedlerMichigan is known for its clear lake waters, its sandy beaches, and its abundant wildlife along with its diverse cities and vibrant economy. Michigan is known as an exceptional place to live, with a strong workforce and a multitude of beautiful places to play.

Residents living in Michigan deserve to drink clean water, walk on clean soil and to breathe clean air. Every day the staff of the Air Quality Division works to protect and enhance the air quality of our state in a variety of ways; be it conducting inspections, writing permits, monitoring our air or engaging with our diverse communities. In Michigan, we set high standards. Remarkable progress has been made since we began over 50 years ago. While we are proud of our efforts, our focus is on the work yet to be done. Please join with us in keeping our air clean and in making Michigan a healthier place to live, work, and play.

I am pleased to provide you with our 2017 Air Quality Program Report.
