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 Department of Planning and Environment and the EPA
The department monitors, analyses and distributes information about air quality and air pollution.
The Environment Protection Authority (EPA) regulates air quality and implements measures for managing and reporting air pollution.
