Air Quality Public Records

Many Division of Air Quality documents are available online.

Facility Document Search

The Division of Air Quality has a new tool called the ArcGIS/Facility Mapping Tool that allows the public to search and find any facility permitted by the Division (excluding above ground storage tanks). This includes any historical and present-day records on our facilities. The mapping tool is the easiest way to find records for any facility permitted by DAQ. This tool provides links to historical facility documents stored in Laserfiche.

Note: Facilities in Buncombe, Forsyth and Mecklenburg counties are regulated by local air programs, not the Division of Air Quality. Check with the local programs for records pertaining to facilities in those counties.

Often-requested permitting files for certain facilities are also available at the following pages:

Electronic Document Search

With the new Laserfiche electronic records repository, PDF versions of most documents created and received by the Division of Air Quality will be available through this portal for public review, greatly expanding the public’s ease of access to these records. All public records previously available online are now located in Laserfiche and historical paper files are being digitized.
