APCD Permit Application Forms & Fees
Any piece of equipment or project that emits or controls air pollutants requires a permit prior to installation and operation unless it is specifically exempted from the APCD’s permit requirements. Companies must apply for and receive a permit before even purchasing new equipment to know exactly what the permit conditions and other requirements will be before construction, installation, and operation begin. More information types of permits, the permitting process, and exceptions can be found here.
Forms used to apply for permits and a guide to applicable fees are found below. Carefully read the instructions below before starting to fill out forms. For quicker processing, please submit reports and applications for emissions-based permits to our permitting department. Any submissions e-mailed will need to also be submitted either as hardcopy, faxed, or on physical electronic media (CD, floppy, flash drive).
These are the fees associated with different permit-related actions, which are established in APCD Regulation 2.08.
Fees may be paid with check or money order sent to 701 W. Ormsby Ave. Suite 303, Louisville, KY 40203 and made payable to "Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control District". Fees may also be paid with any major credit card EXCEPT American Express by contacting Monica Little at 502-574-7246. Note that filing fees are due at the time of application submittal. All other fees will be invoiced.
