Division of Air Pollution Control

The federal Clean Air Act requires U.S. EPA to set clean air standards to protect public health and welfare. The Division of Air Pollution Control has adopted rules that ensure those standards are met throughout Ohio.

To protect Ohio’s air quality, Ohio EPA annually reviews approximately 750 requests for permits for new or modified air pollution sources, and 262 requests for renewal permits. A permit can cover multiple sources of air pollution. Ohio has more than 700 major sources that require comprehensive state and federal operating permits. Ohio EPA requires continuous monitoring of emissions at 115 facilities, including more than 350 major pollution sources. Staff conduct biannual inspections of facilities that emit more than 100 tons of air pollution per year, and all facilities that emit regulated levels of hazardous air pollutants.

Local air pollution control agencies throughout Ohio have been delegated certain air pollution control responsibilities from Ohio EPA. These agencies work under contract with Ohio EPA and, along with our district offices, perform a variety of technical and engineering services. These agencies are typically part of a city, county or health district organization. The contracted agencies serve a critical role in air monitoring, permitting and compliance oversight in certain areas of the state in addition to performing certain activities directly for U.S. EPA and/or their parent organizations (for example, indoor air quality).

Office of Special Investigations

The primary mission of the Office of Special Investigations is to investigate situations of actual or potential criminal violations of laws and regulations that are under the purview of Ohio EPA. This is the only group within Ohio EPA that is specifically designed to handle complex criminal investigations. These investigations often result in criminal sanctions against responsible individuals or companies.

Staff members have the flexibility to cross program boundaries in the course of their investigations. Each district office has at least one person who is responsible for following up on complaints and conducting investigations within the district’s service area. The activities below are examples of situations that may warrant OSI involvement:

  • illegal disposal or abandonment of hazardous waste, solid waste or construction and demolition debris;
  • burial of waste at unpermitted locations;
  • unpermitted discharges into waters of the state;
  • unpermitted emissions of toxic air pollutants;
  • open burning;
  • bypassing treatment systems;
  • filling of wetlands;
  • “rip and tear” asbestos projects;
  • falsification of documents such as manifests, waste receipt logs and monthly operating reports; and
  • making false statements to regulatory personnel. 

Office of Compliance Assistance and Pollution Prevention

The Office of Compliance Assistance and Pollution Prevention (OCAPP) is a non-regulatory program that provides information and resources to help businesses achieve compliance with environmental regulations. Another primary goal of the office is to help customers identify and implement pollution prevention measures that can save money, increase business performance and benefit the environment.

Information obtained by the office is not shared with Ohio EPA inspection or enforcement staff. OCAPP has staff located in both the central and district offices. Each district has one OCAPP employee who is responsible for working directly with small businesses to help them understand and comply with applicable environmental requirements. The main services of OCAPP include:

  • Respond to inquiries from a toll-free hotline, (800) 329-7518.
  • Provide onsite compliance and pollution prevention assessments.
  • Offer compliance and pollution prevention workshops/training.
  • Maintain a library of publications written in plain English that explain regulatory requirements and pollution prevention opportunities.
  • Help small businesses complete air permit applications and other Ohio EPA forms.

Access Public Records

Under Ohio’s public records law, citizens have the right to view upon request the public records of offices such as Ohio EPA. Ohio’s public records law should not be confused with the Federal Freedom of Information Act, which applies to records held by federal agencies. For more information about Ohio’s public records law, you may review Ohio Revised Code 149.43 at http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/149.43.

In order to better identify, locate and track the file(s) being requested, Ohio EPA suggests all requests for public records or file reviews be submitted in writing. When making a request, it is suggested that you fill out and submit the file review request checklist. The Procedures for Public Records Requests and File Reviews fact sheet explains Ohio EPA’s file review process in more detail.

Ohio EPA does not have a central repository for all its records. Once your request is received, it is routed to the appropriate program offices to secure files. Once the files are located, you will be contacted to have copies made or to set up a convenient time for you to review the files.

Ohio EPA has created the eDocument Search, where noncompliance documents issued since Jan. 1, 2007 are posted online. This feature will improve efficiency; reduce costs; and greatly improve the public's ability to access to Ohio EPA's public records from anywhere without copying costs. 

To access public records in CDO, email Lisa Oltman, call (614) 728-0793 or fax your request to (614) 728-3898.


Due to increased demand for file reviews, appointments are required to review district files. Office typically asks for five days advance notice for file search requests. However, requests that are limited in nature (such as files for just one facility for just one division) can usually be accommodated in less than five days.

Any request for copies under 250 pages will be provided to you free of charge and will be made by our office staff. If the request totals more than 250 pages, you have the following options:

  • Ohio EPA will do the copying for you at five cents a page and will invoice you along with the copies. A copying request form needs to be completed and submitted to File Review Coordinator for processing. Copies will be made and sent out within five business days following the file review.
  • You may bring your own copy machine and Ohio EPA will provide an area for you to review the files and make your own copies.
  • You may contact a private copy service to come to our office and copy the files. If this option interests you, you may contact the district office for names and numbers of copying services in the area.

Compliance Assistance and Pollution Prevention

This non-regulatory program provides information and resources to help small businesses comply with environmental regulations. OCAPP also helps customers identify and implement pollution prevention measures that can save money, increase business performance and benefit the environment. Services of the office include a toll-free hotline, on-site compliance and P2 assessments, workshops/training, plain-English publications library and assistance in completing permit application forms. 

For compliance assistance and pollution prevention information in central Ohio, email Brent Goetz or call (614) 644-3646.

Special Investigations

The Office of Special Investigations is the criminal investigative branch of Ohio EPA. The office works in partnership with other state and federal agencies to conduct investigations of activities that may criminally violate any of the state or federal environmental laws or regulations. The office's investigations span all of Ohio EPA's environmental programs. To report suspected violations or illegal activities, email Ron Bonner or call 1-800-282-9378.

Access Public Records

Under Ohio’s public records law, citizens have the right to view upon request the public records of offices such as Ohio EPA. Ohio’s public records law should not be confused with the Federal Freedom of Information Act, which applies to records held by federal agencies. For more information about Ohio’s public records law, you may review Ohio Revised Code 149.43 at http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/149.43.

In order to better identify, locate and track the file(s) being requested, Ohio EPA suggests all requests for public records or file reviews be submitted in writing. When making a request, it is suggested that you fill out and submit the file review request checklist. The Procedures for Public Records Requests and File Reviews fact sheet explains Ohio EPA’s file review process in more detail.

Ohio EPA does not have a central repository for all its records. Once your request is received, it is routed to the appropriate program offices to secure files. Once the files are located, you will be contacted to have copies made or to set up a convenient time for you to review the files.

Ohio EPA has created the eDocument Search, where noncompliance documents issued since Jan. 1, 2007 are posted online. This feature will improve efficiency; reduce costs; and greatly improve the public's ability to access to Ohio EPA's public records from anywhere without copying costs.

To access public records in NEDO, please email Nicole Patella, call (330) 963-1200 or fax your request to (330) 487-0769.


Due to increased demand for file reviews, appointments are required to review district files. A minimum of two weeks is needed to gather the files and schedule a room. Within four business days after submitting a request, Ohio EPA will contact you to set up an appointment for the review. At this time, additional information may be required to help locate the correct file. If we are unable to reach you by phone, we will send written notification of the date and time for the review.

When you are here to review a file, you may make copies of the public records that you have reviewed. You will be billed five cents per copy, but as a courtesy, if you make fewer than 250 copies, you will not be billed. A two-sided copy is counted as two copies. If you copy more than 250 pages, you will be invoiced.

Office staff are not available to research files. The exception is if you are looking for a very specific document; in that case, we will try to assist in finding that one document. If a file is small, approximately 50 pages, copies will be made and mailed to you. For larger files, copying options include:

  • Bring your own copier and paper.
  • If you are not available to review the files, you may send other personnel to review the requested file(s) and copy documents as needed.
  • Contract with a private copy service. The Northeast District Office works in association with Ikon. You may contact them to make copies for you or at your request, we will contact Ikon for you. The customer is responsible for all charges incurred from Ikon. Even though we work in association with Ikon, you are not required to use this service.
  • The contact person for Ikon is Ryan O’Deal at (330) 384-9111. Ikon can pick up the same day as your review or the following morning. If the requestor is in the Ikon service area, they can hand deliver documents or send the copied documents out by Federal Express.
  • Contact with another vendor to come to Northeast District to copy files. However, the only vendor authorized to take files from the building is Ikon. Other vendors will need to come to the district and make all copies on the premises.

Compliance Assistance and Pollution Prevention

This non-regulatory program provides information and resources to help small businesses comply with environmental regulations. OCAPP also helps customers identify and implement pollution prevention measures that can save money, increase business performance and benefit the environment. Services of the office include a toll-free hotline, on-site compliance and P2 assessments, workshops/training, plain-English publications library and assistance in completing permit application forms. 

For compliance assistance and pollution prevention information in northeast Ohio, email Tamara Girard, John Schmidt or call (330) 963-1200.

Special Investigations

The Office of Special Investigations is the criminal investigative branch of Ohio EPA. The office works in partnership with other state and federal agencies to conduct investigations of activities that may criminally violate any of the state or federal environmental laws or regulations. The office's investigations span all of Ohio EPA's environmental programs. To report suspected violations or illegal activities, email Ron Fodo or call 1-800-282-9378.

Access Public Records

Under Ohio’s public records law, citizens have the right to view upon request the public records of offices such as Ohio EPA. Ohio’s public records law should not be confused with the Federal Freedom of Information Act, which applies to records held by federal agencies. For more information about Ohio’s public records law, you may review Ohio Revised Code 149.43 at http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/149.43.

In order to better identify, locate and track the file(s) being requested, Ohio EPA suggests all requests for public records or file reviews be submitted in writing. When making a request, it is suggested that you fill out and submit the file review request checklist. The Procedures for Public Records Requests and File Reviews fact sheet explains Ohio EPA’s file review process in more detail.

Ohio EPA does not have a central repository for all its records. Once your request is received, it is routed to the appropriate program offices to secure files. Once the files are located, you will be contacted to have copies made or to set up a convenient time for you to review the files.

Ohio EPA has created the eDocument Search, where noncompliance documents issued since Jan. 1, 2007 are posted online. This feature will improve efficiency; reduce costs; and greatly improve the public's ability to access to Ohio EPA's public records from anywhere without copying costs.

To access public records in NWDO, email Cheryl Gulley, call (419) 373-3086 or fax your request to (419) 352-8468.


Due to increased demand for file reviews, appointments are required to review district files. Office typically asks for five days advance notice for file search requests. However, requests that are limited in nature (such as files for just one facility for just one division) can usually be accommodated in less than five days.

If you wish to cancel your request, this can be done either in writing or by telephone. At that time, Ohio EPA will stop making copies and prepare a final invoice. The final invoice will reflect the charges for copying done by Ohio EPA up to the time the request was canceled. Failure to cancel a copy order results in an invoice for the full copying fee.

Your copying options are as follows:

  • When you are here to review a file, you may make copies of the public records that you have reviewed. You will be billed five cents per copy, but as a courtesy, if you make fewer than 250 copies, you will not be billed. A two sided copy is counted as two (2) copies.
  • Bring your own copier and paper.
  • Use a private copy service to come to our office and copy the files. If you wish to pursue this option, you may contact a service of your choice or contact the district office for names and numbers of copying services in the area.
  • Request that Ohio EPA make the copies and mail them to you. These requests are completed as quickly as is reasonable given the scope of the request. Requests that are particularly complicated or voluminous may take several weeks to complete. If you choose this option, the cost for copies is five cents per page, plus shipping. If the cost of copying will exceed $50.00 (1,000 pages), a deposit of one half of the estimated cost must be paid prior to the start of any copying by Ohio EPA. Checks should be made payable to the State of Ohio. Ohio EPA will bill you for the balance once the copying has been completed. All parties that make requests that are expected to cost less than $50.00 will be invoiced once the copying has been completed.

Compliance Assistance and Pollution Prevention

This non-regulatory program provides information and resources to help small businesses comply with environmental regulations. OCAPP also helps customers identify and implement pollution prevention measures that can save money, increase business performance and benefit the environment. Services of the office include a toll-free hotline, on-site compliance and P2 assessments, workshops/training, plain-English publications library and assistance in completing permit application forms.

For compliance assistance and pollution prevention information in northwest Ohio, contact Jeremy Scoles by email or phone at (419) 373-3095.

Special Investigations

The Office of Special Investigations is the criminal investigative branch of Ohio EPA. The office works in partnership with other state and federal agencies to conduct investigations of activities that may criminally violate any of the state or federal environmental laws or regulations. The office's investigations span all of Ohio EPA's environmental programs. To report suspected violations or illegal activities, email Rick Hassinger or call 1-800-282-9378.

Access Public Records

Under Ohio’s public records law, citizens have the right to view upon request the public records of offices such as Ohio EPA. Ohio’s public records law should not be confused with the Federal Freedom of Information Act, which applies to records held by federal agencies. For more information about Ohio’s public records law, you may review Ohio Revised Code 149.43 at http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/149.43.

In order to better identify, locate and track the file(s) being requested, Ohio EPA suggests all requests for public records or file reviews be submitted in writing. When making a request, it is suggested that you fill out and submit the file review request checklist. The Procedures for Public Records Requests and File Reviews fact sheet explains Ohio EPA’s file review process in more detail.

Ohio EPA does not have a central repository for all its records. Once your request is received, it is routed to the appropriate program offices to secure files. Once the files are located, you will be contacted to have copies made or to set up a convenient time for you to review the files.

Ohio EPA has created the eDocument Search, where noncompliance documents issued since Jan. 1, 2007 are posted online. This feature will improve efficiency; reduce costs; and greatly improve the public's ability to access to Ohio EPA's public records from anywhere without copying costs.

To access public records in SEDO, email Angie Hardesty, call (740) 380-5415 or fax your request to (740) 385-6490.


Due to increased demand for file reviews, appointments are required to review district files. The office typically asks for two weeks advance notice for file search requests. However, requests that are limited in nature (such as files for just one facility for just one division) can usually be accommodated in less than two weeks.

Options available to copy records include the following: 

  • When you are here to review a file, you may make copies of the public records that you have reviewed.
  • Bring your own copier and Ohio EPA will provide a room for you to review the records.
  • Requests for a specific document less than 250 pages will be copied by our office staff, free of charge and mailed to you within seven business days. Staff are not available to research files, compile records or create new documents.
  • Contract with Profile Discovery copying service. For information and costs, please contact Larry Kotterman or Andrew Keck, 15 East Gay St., Suite 200, Columbus, OH 43215, (614) 222-2888.

Compliance Assistance and Pollution Prevention

This non-regulatory program provides information and resources to help small businesses comply with environmental regulations. OCAPP also helps customers identify and implement pollution prevention measures that can save money, increase business performance and benefit the environment. Services of the office include a toll-free hotline, on-site compliance and P2 assessments, workshops/training, plain-English publications library and assistance in completing permit application forms. 

For compliance assistance and pollution prevention information in central Ohio, email Ralph Witte or call (740) 380-5241.

Special Investigations

The Office of Special Investigations is the criminal investigative branch of Ohio EPA. The office works in partnership with other state and federal agencies to conduct investigations of activities that may criminally violate any of the state or federal environmental laws or regulations. The office's investigations span all of Ohio EPA's environmental programs. To report suspected violations or illegal activities, email Ken Mettler or call 1-800-282-9378.

Due to increased demand for file reviews, appointments are required to review district files. A minimum of two weeks is normally needed to gather the files and schedule a room. Any request for copies less than 250 pages will be provided to you free of charge and will be made by our office staff within seven working days.

For anything more than 250 pages, these are your options:

  • Copy the files yourself on a copier provided for file reviews at a cost of five cents per page. You will be billed at a later date for copying.
  • If the copies number less than half of a file box, we can copy them for you at a rate of five cents per page. Our staff will provide these copies and an invoice within 7 working days.
  • If the copies number over half of a file box full, we will send the copies to ARC Solutions where they will be copied and mailed directly to you. The cost for copying is 25 cents per page plus postage. ARC Solutions representatives will contact you for billing and shipping information. Please specify turn around time needed. Additional charges will apply for Fed-Ex shipping. If you have a Fed-Ex account you may provide the number for shipping. The phone number for ARC Solutions is (937) 277-7930.
  • You may bring your own copy machine and we will provide an area for you to set it up.
  • You may contact another vendor to come to our offices and copy the files for you. If this is an option for you, you may contact the district office for names and numbers of copying services in the area.
