Summary

The New Mexico Environment Department's Air Quality Bureau processes permit applications for industries that emit pollutants to the air. The Permitting Section consists of three units, the Minor Source Unit, the Major Source Unit and the Technical Services Unit.

The Bureau is governed by regulations established by the Environmental Improvement Board, which establish the requirements for obtaining an operating permit. It also establishes a schedule of operating permit emission fees. An annual operating permit emission fee shall be paid to the department by each owner or operator subject to this part. The annual fee shall be calculated by taking the product of the allowable emission rate for each fee pollutant expressed in tons per year and the appropriate fee per ton of pollutant.
