Air Quality 

Air quality is a broad discipline that covers both health effects and pollution prevention.  The USAPHC has an experienced and dedicated staff of air quality management professionals to provide a comprehensive set of services to meet the requirements of your air quality management goals.


Air Quality Index (AQI)

The Air Quality Index (AQI) is the daily forecast for the quality of the air.


Air Quality Modeling

Computerized dispersion modeling is used to predict ambient concentrations on and off-post at Army and DoD locations.

Air Quality Permits

Air quality permits are now required for most military activities that emit an air pollutant.

Ambient Sampling

Ambient air sampling for National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) determines inhalation exposure to soldiers, civilians, and their families at Army and DoD locations throughout the world.

Compliance Audits

Audits evaluate compliance with Federal, state and local air quality requirements. These audits may be necessary annually to certify compliance with a Title V permit.


Specialty air quality consultative services help meet air regulatory or health investigation needs. They include: NEPA, MACT, PSD, General Conformity

Greenhouse Gas Inventories

Information on compiling inventories and developing mitigation strategies for greenhouse gases.

Hazardous Waste Combustor Support

We develop Comprehensive Performance Test Plans required for MACT permitting and also develop the Confirmatory Performance Test Plans.

Ozone Depleting Chemicals

The Air Quality Surveillance ProgramThe Air Quality Surveillance Program conducts Ozone Depleting Chemicals (ODC) inventories

Risk Management Plans

Air quality permits are now required for most military activities that emit an air pollutant. We can help prepare all the necessary paperwork and do the technical research for your NSR, PSD, Title V and state air quality permits.

Specialized Stack Testing

The AQSP can provide specialized testing support for sampling method and equipment validation.

Stack Emission Testing

The AQSP can perform stack emissions testing for HAPs and other regulated air pollutants to determine concentrations being emitted to the atmosphere. Stack tests are necessary to evaluate compliance with NSPS limits.

Toxic Release Inventory (TRI)

TRI documents the toxic chemicals at a facility that are being used, manufactured, treated, transported, or released into the environment.
