Clean Air Act

The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 continue to impact air regulations by imposing constantly changing federal and state requirements on manufacturing.  With the ever-increasing regulation of hazardous air pollutants and greater federal oversight, facility owners have to be more cognizant of their compliance obligations.  Brouse McDowell’s environmental attorneys keep up to date on the changes and can offer clients advice and guidance in this complex regulatory area.
