Air Quality

Because you can’t always see what harms you.

NV5’s Air Quality team provides permitting, compliance, policy, and litigation support to a variety of industries, businesses, and public agencies. We are experts at navigating the myriad of complex federal and state regulatory requirements, including the specific requirements of all California Air Pollution Control Districts. Our experience, speed, and efficiency coupled with depth of experience allows us to help our clients obtain permits and maintain compliance.

We serve the aerospace, mining, recycling, food processing, grocery, power generation, oil & gas, construction, municipal operations, and manufacturing industries.


  • Air Permits – NV5 has obtained permits throughout the US for new industrial facilities, facility expansion, and operation modifications. Our mechanical, chemical and process engineers work closely with our clients to ensure facilities are designed to comply with air quality regulations so that permits are obtained. Obtaining Air Permits can be a complex and long process. NV5 can assist in expediting the project through the regulatory maze of state, local and federal requirements including New Source Review and Title V.
  • NESHAP and NSPS – We stay abreast of the ever changing requirements for equipment performance and emissions standards. We determine if requirements apply to client facilities, keep them informed about new changes (including updates to the MACT), and help develop compliance strategies.
  • Compliance Reporting – NV5 Environmental compliance reporting services includes:
    • Annual Emissions Inventory Reporting
    • Mobile & Stationary Sources
    • Toxic Inventory Reporting (TRI)
  • CARB Portable Equipment Registration Program Applications (PERP) and Annual Reports – The CARB’s PERP allows specific types of portable equipment to operate anywhere in the state of California. The NV5 Air Team has been assisting businesses for over 20 years in understanding the restrictions and benefits of the PERP. This includes the preparation and submittal of the registration paperwork and assisting with compliance conditions.
  • Electronic Reporting for RECLAIM – Our Air Quality team has been assisting facilities since the beginning of the program to manage the demanding regulatory requirements of the RECLAIM program. This includes Monthly, and Quarterly electronic transmissions and record keeping requirements, regular compliance reminders on critical tasks, and modification/permitting assistance.
