Air Quality Enforcement

The program uses enforcement actions to bring facilities into compliance with state and federal air pollution regulations. This includes formal administrative actions such as administrative consent orders and administrative fine orders. Air Quality's Enforcement Program also supports and assists the Department of Attorney General and Environmental Protection Agency with air pollution cases referred by the enforcement program.

When the AQD enters into an enforcement action with a facility, the action typically results in a legally binding agreement between the State of Michigan and the facility which contains a monetary penalty, a compliance plan, and sometimes a Supplemental Environmental Project (SEP).

Compliance and Enforcement

Field Operations staff routinely conduct inspections of manufacturing operations to determine compliance with federal and state air pollution control regulations and facility permits. Sources responsible for emissions at levels above what is allowed by law are accountable for their actions. Resolution of air pollution problems and violations is normally accomplished by encouraging voluntary compliance by the companies involved and the implementation of timely and appropriate compliance programs. However, enforcement actions against non-compliant sources may be initiated to ensure continued compliance with federal and state air pollution control regulations.
