In the early 1950s, the science of air pollution was energized by the discovery that ground-level ozone was the main chemical in “smog”, a conjunction of “smoke” and “fog” that soon became a household word.

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District is committed to achieving clean air to protect the public's health and the environment in the San Francisco Bay region.
By signing up to receive Air District Information you can stay up to date on the activities happening at the Air District.
On Spare the Air Days, we ask Bay Area residents to reduce pollution by making clean air choices every day. These simple actions include driving less, taking public transportation, trip-linking, walking, biking, choosing non-gasoline-powered lawn and garden equipment, and avoiding polluting household products.
Use the link above to sign up for information on when Air Alerts are going to be issued.
Regular meetings of the Bay Area Air Quality Management District Board of Directors are held on the first and third Wednesday of each month at 9:45 a.m. in the 7th floor Board room at 939 Ellis Street.
The Executive Office is responsible for preparing agendas and informational materials. Agendas are available to the public 72 hours in advance of a meeting and are posted on the Internet and in the lobby at District Headquarters.
The Hearing Board is established by state law and consists of five members - an attorney, a professional engineer, a member from the medical profession and two members of the public. The Hearing Board is a quasi-judicial body that rules on particular cases that affect only individual facilities. It is authorized to hear requests for variance relief, permit revocation, abatement orders, and appeals by permit applicants, or by interested third parties, concerning the issuance or denial of permits.
The District will issue new editions of Rules and Regulations from time to time, when warranted by additions and other changes. Use this link above to sign up for more information on the Air District Regulation changes.
With Settlement Notice Registration you will be notified by email when the Bay Area Air Quality Management District has completed a Settlement of $100,000 or more.
