The purpose of the Air Pollution Control Program (APCP) is to ensure that citizens of Jefferson County have access to air which meets the health standards established by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). A significant portion of resources by the APCP are devoted to monitoring pollutant levels in the ambient air, which it has done for over 40 years. Information received from the monitoring network concerning pollutant levels is used as the basis for developing any control strategies necessary to ensure that health standards are attained and maintained. The purpose of the Radiological Health Program is to ensure that x-ray and tanning facilities in Jefferson County are in compliance with regulations.
