Asbestos - Demolition and Renovation
Updated September 20, 2012
Placer County Air Pollution Control District is non-delegated - responsible for enforcement of the U.S. EPA’s National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) regulations for Asbestos. The U.S. EPA has delegated this responsibility to the California Air Resources Board which has the forms necessary to comply with the NESHAP regulations.
The U.S. EPA has either delegated the Asbestos NESHAPS program oversight to air districts or the local district is not delegated and the State is responsible. The following is a "California map that shows delegated and non-delegated Air Pollution Control Districts.
