The Southeast District (SED) Air Program is responsible for protecting, conserving and restoring the air resources for Okeechobee, St. Lucie, Martin, Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties.  Our District, as well as the rest of Florida, is currently meeting all federal and state standards for air quality.  Constant vigilance is needed, however, to maintain our status as we face a growing population.

Air quality is of utmost importance, and because our air quality in Florida is good, we tend to take it for granted.  The average person breathes 25,000 times a day without thinking about it.  You can live for weeks without food and days without water, but only five minutes without air.  We all need to do our part to protect our air quality.

The SED Air Resources Management Program accomplishes its mission by implementing the federal Clean Air Act and enforcing Florida statutes and rules.  We also monitor the District's air quality, administer Florida's air pollution control programs, promote Pollution Prevention and coordinate our work with the efforts of other local, state and federal programs.  Local programs in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties assist us.
