The Act contains regulations to prevent the pollution and contamination of the atmosphere. The Act establishes a contiguous metropolitan pollution control district, comprised of towns in the greater Boston area. The Department of Environmental Protection is responsible for controlling pollution levels in this district, and has the authority to prescribe and establish, amend or repeal, rules and regulations to prevent pollution or undue contamination of the atmosphere within said district. Other municipalities may apply to the Department to form additional pollution control districts. Regulations pertaining to this Act can be found in 310 CMR 7.00-8.00.
