There are several Air Quality Factsheets available on different topics.

Education resources can be found on the Air Quality Education Page.

Monitoring The Air Quality Division operates a network of air quality monitoring stations across Oklahoma.  Current and historical monitoring records of air quality are available online.

Alerting the Public When the concentrations of important pollutants exceed National Standards for Air Quality, DEQ quickly provides information to the public including via e-mail and pager advisories.

Complaints about an air quality problem can be made online or by calling 1-800-522-0206.  This toll-free number is answered 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Complaints are handled by the DEQ Environmental Complaints and Local Services division who can call on assistance from the AQD Compliance & Enforcement Section to resolve a problem.  DEQ is proud of its nationally recognized complaints program, where the goal is to fully resolve all public complaints within 90 days.

Rules & Planning The Air Quality Council, through public hearings, recommends to the Oklahoma Environmental Quality Board adoption of Oklahoma Air Quality Rules. These rules form the strategy that DEQ has developed to maintain and improve Oklahoma's air quality.

Permits An Air Quality Permit is a public contract between DEQ on behalf of the State of Oklahoma and a company. It governs the amount of air pollutants that can be safely released from a facility owned by that company. Permits that have been applied for or have been recently issued to facilities to emit regulated air pollutants are available for public review. You can submit comments online about draft permits that are currently open for public comment.

The Lead-Based Paint page and Asbestos page contain many resources and information about these two programs which are run by the Air Quality Division.

The AQD Toxics Group studies the emissions of important toxic air pollutants in Oklahoma that can be hazardous to humans and the environment.
