Overview

CAPCOG's Air Quality Program coordinates regional air quality planning and performs air quality technical research, especially focusing on ground-level ozone pollution. The program's planning efforts include coordinating development and implementation of voluntary regional air quality plans, providing technical assistance to organizations that participate in the air quality plans, administering regional pollution reduction grants and conducting air quality education and outreach to reduce emissions and exposure to air pollution. Technical research efforts include air quality monitoring, emissions inventory development, data analysis, modeling, and pollution control strategy evaluation. The program is funded through grants from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and local governments.
