2021 By the Numbers -- Over 2,900 air quality inspections
February 03, 2022
EGLE ensures that Michigan's air remains clean by regulating sources of air pollutants to minimize adverse impact on human health and the environment.
EGLE's Air Quality Division's goals are to meet and maintain air quality standards and limit emissions of hazardous and toxic pollutants.
Last year, staff performed 2,926 air quality inspections, including 2,034 asbestos-related inspections and 892 inspections at industrial facilities.
Staff also received almost 40,000 notifications of demolition or renovation work through the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants program.
The Division releases a Year in Review each March with details about the program, including information on air quality inspections and enforcement actions among other things.
