The City of Fort Worth's Air Quality Team acts to prohibit emissions of pollutants exceeding State and Federal standards within the jurisdictional boundaries of the City of Fort Worth in an effort to reduce air pollution within the DFW Metroplex to below the US Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) non-attainment standards. These pollutants include, but are not limited to, Carbon Monoxide, Lead, Nitrogen Dioxide, Ozone, Particulate Matter, Sulfur Dioxide, and certain Hazardous Air Pollutants established within the US Clean Air Act. The City of Fort Worth is authorized to inspect business and industry and enforce Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and US EPA regulations regarding Air Quality for operations that result in the emission of the above air pollutants.
The City of Fort Worth operates under an intergovernmental contract granted by the US EPA through the TCEQ. Monthly and quarterly reporting of activities conducted under this contract is submitted to the TCEQ.
Comments and questions from residents regarding air program requirements are welcomed as part of our education and outreach process. Please email comments to environmental@FortWorthTexas.gov.
