The Larimer County Department of Health & Environment focuses on improving outdoor air quality in Larimer County by:

  • Inspecting minor stationary sources permitted through the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Air Pollution Control Division
  • Performing CFC compliance inspections
  • Issuing open burn permits
  • Investigating air quality complaints

We are not directly involved with the Mobile Emissions Program which regulates automobile emissions and other transportation issues.

Indoor Air Quality is not regulated in private residences.
