Compliance Snapshot Award


The Air Quality Department presents the Compliance Snapshot Award to permit holders who are found to have reached a level of compliance that is exemplary and above and beyond what might be normally expected.

The Compliance Snapshot award is a certificate that is presented by the Director of the Department of Air Quality to a facility that has been nominated by an inspector who made the observations and recommended the facility for the award.

This award may be presented to any facility that meets the award criteria and multiple awards may be presented each year.
