Air Quality

The City of Fort Worth Environmental Quality Division operates in several ways to improve our city’s health and well-being with regards to the air that we breathe.

Businesses and factories are inspected to make sure they meet state and federal clean air requirements. Concerns for air pollution are investigated to protect public health and the environment. The air is monitored for pollution in real-time to provide residents with important information.

Legal Requirements

The City of Fort Worth's Air Quality Team acts to control emissions of pollutants exceeding state and federal requirements within the jurisdictional boundaries of the City of Fort Worth in an effort to reduce air pollution within the DFW Metroplex. Air quality goals are for air pollution to be below the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (USEPA) standards for non-attainment. These pollutants include: carbon monoxide, lead, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, particulate matter, sulfur dioxide and other hazardous air pollutants established within the U.S. Clean Air Act. The City of Fort Worth is authorized to inspect businesses and industrial facilities and to enforce regulations regarding air quality.

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.
