Maine's Air program within the Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) was created in response to Federal requirements under ¤110 of the Clean Air Act (1970). Following the establishment of National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for certain air contaminants (See CAA ¤109), each state was required by ¤110 to adopt and submit a plan for the implementation, maintenance, and enforcement of the national standards within each of its air quality control regions of each state.
