About Us

General Information

EPA's Region 9 Air Program guides the federal management, implementation, enforcement and technical oversight of ambient air quality and indoor air quality, including control of pollution from stationary and mobile sources, prevention of radiation exposure and protection of the stratospheric ozone layer.

The federal Clean Air Act, which was amended in 1990, is the foundation for most of these activities. Information on national air quality programs can be found at EPA's Office of Air and Radiation.
