Air Attainment Status

Air Emission Regulations - Midland is an "Attainment Area" and in compliance with all Federal Ambient Air Standards for ozone, particulates and sulfur dioxide.

In 1993, the Texas Water Commission and the Texas Air Control Board merged to form the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission (TNRCC) now known as the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).  For the first time, environmental issues in Texas, whether land, air or water, are addressed by a single comprehensive agency. State environmental activities are now better coordinated and less fragmented. The single state agency has the expertise and authority to integrate and implement state policies on air quality, water quality, water resources and waste management.

A goal of the commission is to promote economic growth by significantly improving and streamlining the State's environmental permitting programs so that businesses may acquire needed permits within substantially shorter times.
