The Hawaii Department of Health's (DOH) Clean Air Branch (CAB) is responsible for air pollution control in the state of Hawaii. The primary services of the branch are provided by its three sections: Engineering, Monitoring, and Enforcement. These sections conduct engineering analysis and permitting, perform monitoring and investigations, and enforce the federal and state air pollution control laws and regulations.
The CAB plans, operates and maintains the statewide ambient air quality monitoring network. Monitoring data is used for a variety of reasons including determining compliance with National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS), timely reporting of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Air Quality Index (AQI), tracking and characterizing air quality trends, evaluating emission control strategies, and supporting health studies. The DOH manages all of the State and Local Air Monitoring Stations (SLAMS), Special Purpose Monitoring Stations (SPMS), and the National Core Multi-pollutant Monitoring Station (NCore).
