  • Major sources emitting greater than 100 tons actual emissions
  • Minor sources emitting less than 100 tons
  • Gasoline distribution facilities (not including terminals)
  • Parking lots/decks/garages

Please call 704/336-5430 and make your request for the information (hard copy, disk, or E-mail) to an Air Quality Secretary. You can also access specific information on permitted air quality sources at the Air Pollution Facility Database.
