The Nevada Business Environmental Program (BEP) at the University of Nevada, Reno and the Washoe County Health District, Air Quality Management Division (AQMD) are pleased to announce a new partnership to provide air quality compliance and permitting assistance for the Washoe County business community.

The main benefits for businesses and residents of this partnership include:

  • Compliance assistance with air quality regulations
  • Air quality permitting and registrations
  • Information on workshops & events
  • Other air quality related questions

“Our goal is making sure we’re serving our residents who have questions or needs related to air quality regulations, permitting, requirements or any other matters,” said Francisco Vega, Division Director of the Washoe County Health District’s Air Quality Management Division. ” If we can help businesses get their questions answered quickly and achieve compliance by partnering with BEP to provide business assistance on the front end, then it’s good for the business community and it frees our internal resources to focus on other important air quality issues.”
