Inspection Programs

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) reviews applications and issues all permits to sources of air emissions in Sedgwick County. These permits restrict the way a facility is constructed and operated, thus ensuring that emissions from the facility will have minimal impact on the surrounding population and the environment.

Annual facility inspections of air pollution sources in Sedgwick County are conducted by KDHE to determine compliance with air regulations and permit conditions. Appropriate air pollution control equipment, as specified in the permit, must be in place and operating properly. Surveillance observations and routine inspections are also regularly conducted. These routine compliance audits help insure that sources in Wichita and Sedgwick County maintain compliance over time.
