Who we are:

Vision A healthy breathing environment for every Bay Area resident.
Mission To protect and improve public health, air quality, and the global climate.

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District is the public agency entrusted with protecting the air you breathe in the nine counties that surround San Francisco Bay: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, southwestern Solano, and southern Sonoma counties.

The Air District is governed by a 22-member Board of Directors composed of locally elected officials from each of the nine Bay Area counties that oversees policies and adopts regulations for the control of air pollution within the district.

The Air District consists of more than 300 dedicated staff members, including engineers, inspectors, planners, scientists, and other professionals.
