Through its four branches—permits, compliance, policy and planning, and asbestos and enforcement—OAQ works to protect Arkansas’s air quality, which enhances the lives and health of all Arkansans as well as the experiences of those who visit the Natural State. OAQ does all of this while ensuring stability and fostering economic growth.
"Our office protects air quality in Arkansas to enhance the health of all Arkansans while fostering responsible economic development. We implement several funding programs to assist with community air quality issues such as asbestos disposal, reducing diesel engine emissions, and funding the replacement of certain trucks, transit vehicles, and buses. We also collect and analyze data from the state’s air pollution monitoring network to provide the public with a daily Air Quality Index and air quality predictions."
