  • Louisville Metro Government has closed public access to the Air Pollution Control District’s building and has implemented extensive teleworking.

  • The APCD has changed the deadline to submit Emissions Inventory and Annual Compliance Certification submittals from April 15, 2020, to May 15, 2020. This action merely extends the deadline; it does not waive or suspend any regulatory requirement.

  • Open Records: In response to the public health emergency caused by the rapid spread of COVID-19 and the state of emergency declared by the governor, the Kentucky General Assembly passed Senate Bill 150, which provides a public agency up to ten (10) days to respond to the a request to inspect or receive copies of public records. This deviation from the standard provisions of the Kentucky Open Records Act is authorized for the duration of the declared state of emergency.

  • If you need to speak to someone at the APCD, please call. Our main phone line is (502) 574-6000.

These messages are being checked hourly and we will respond as quickly as possible.
