Air Quality

The Air Quality Program actively responds to air quality complaints and issues open burn permits in El Paso County to protect public health and the natural environment. This is facilitated through a contract with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment which provides authority and funding to enforce state air quality regulations.

To submit an air quality complaint, email [email protected].
