Accurately measuring air quality is the foundation of California’s efforts to reduce air pollution. For more than 50 years California has maintained one of the most extensive air monitoring networks in the world, collecting data on a wide range of pollutants. The information we get from this network makes it possible to track our progress in cleaning the air, and identify the most effective actions needed to meet health-based air standards.
Since 1955, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District has been the public agency responsible for protecting air quality in the nine counties that surround San Francisco Bay: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, southwestern Solano, and southern Sonoma counties. Air District programs monitor air emissions sources, promote climate protection, provide clean air grants, draft rules and regulate stationary air pollution sources. The Air District’s mission is to protect and improve public health, air quality and the global climate. The Air District encourages clean commute alternatives through the Spare the Air program.
The South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) is the air pollution control agency for the South Coast Air Basin, which is comprised of all of Orange County and the urban portions of Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties. This area is home to approximately 17 million people and is the second most populated area in the United States. SCAQMD is responsible for controlling emissions primarily from stationary sources of air pollution. These sources can include anything from large power plants and refineries to the corner gas station. SCAQMD is also responsible for consumer products not regulated by the State Air Resources Board; these include house paint, furniture varnish, and thousands of products containing solvents that evaporate into the air. SCAQMD is committed to clean the air and protect the health of all residents in the South Coast Air District through practical and innovative strategies.
