DEEP: Air Compliance Assurance - Other Programs

Other Programs in Air Compliance Assurance

{trucks idling}


Connecticut law prohibits vehicles of all kinds from unnecessary idling for more than 3 minutes. Reducing emissions from idling motor vehicle engines is one of the most important air quality issues in CT today. "No Idling" is the law!

Emission Reduction

Owners and operators of major sources of air pollution may find information on emission reduction credits, offsets for NSR, NOx trading, and other emission trading related information.

{car refueling}

Gasoline Dispensing Facilities

Stage I, Stage II, and Onboard Refueling Vapor Recovery (ORVR) systems allow for the control of gasoline vapor emissions resulting from gasoline delivery and vehicle refueling at gasoline dispensing facilities.

{open burning}

Open Burning

Open burning is the burning of any matter, where smoke and other emissions are released directly into the ambient air without passing through an adequate stack or flue. Open burning pollutes the air and can make it difficult for people with respiratory problems to breathe.

{outdoor wood burning furnace}

Outdoor Wood Burning Furnaces

Wood burning provides an alternative source of energy; however, it can create nuisance odors and smoke. In burning this solid fuel, while one cannot avoid the production of wood smoke particles, there are steps that can help to reduce their impact.

Air Permit Amnesty

{apple on books}

DEEP is offering a unique opportunity for all of Connecticut's public and private K-12 schools to achieve compliance with state and federal air permitting requirements for their equipment and/or premises. The Air Permit Amnesty Program is a short-term program that is being offered to provide a more efficient, effective, and less expensive process for achieving compliance with all applicable permitting requirements, while providing the opportunity to incorporate energy efficiency.

Please read the Amnesty Program Letter, that has been mailed to the superintendents of all public and private schools, detailing the Amnesty Program.

Although participation is voluntary, we suggest all schools take advantage of this opportunity, regardless of its permitting status, because it can ensure compliance at little or no cost. Any noncompliance issues discovered after the conclusion of the Air Permit Amnesty Program will be subject to normal enforcement procedures and penalties.

Please complete the survey and return it within 60 days of receipt to ascertain your participation in this program.

If you have any questions about the Air Permit Amnesty Program or need help completing the survey, feel free to contact Jared Millay of the Air Bureau at (860) 424-3702 or
