Air Emissions

UCSC maintains about 50 air permits from the Monterey Bay Unified Air Pollution Control District (MBUAPCD). Equipment required to have an air permit to regulate emissions include: Cogeneration engines, hot water boilers, dust collection systems, emergency generator engines, spray paint booths, gasoline dispensing pumps, and fume exhaust systems, including science laboratory fume hood exhaust systems.

The MBUAPCD requires that an application for an air permit must be submitted prior to installation of equipment requiring a permit.

For consultation on air permit requirements and for assistance in preparing an air permit application, contact the Environmental Programs Manager at 831 459-4840.
