Air quality

Clean air is important for our health and the environment. It is a key environmental issue for NSW residents. We monitor and analyse air quality and provide that information to the community and to industry. We work with the EPA and NSW Health to provide a scientific basis for measures to reduce air pollution and protect the community's health. 

Roles of OEH and the EPA

The Office of Environment and Heritage monitors, analyses and distributes information about air quality, air pollution.

The Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) regulates air quality and implements measures for managing and reporting air pollution.
