The Division of Air Resource Management's AirInfo Data Search application provides easy access to Air Facility, Air Compliance & Enforcement and Annual Air Emissions data. Use AirInfo Data Search to find information about sources of air pollution at facilities across the state, including facility compliance and enforcement history and statewide emissions information. You can search by source category, location, SIC Code and facility name.
There are three report types available from AirInfo. All three use the same criteria as the basic Facility Summary report; when the Emissions Summary or Compliance and Enforcement Summary is selected, additional criteria become available.
You can search using multiple criteria from one or more of the following categories:
Facility ID or Company Name
Facility Type/Industry Group
Helpful hints on selecting your search criteria appear below. You can use upper- or lower-case characters when filling out your search fields. After you submit your search criteria, the AirInfo webpage will return a list of all facilities that match the conditions you specified. You will be able to view individual facility data in more detail by using links from your search results table.
(The length of the search results table is limited to a maximum of 500 facilities. If your output exceeds this limit, you must specify additional parameters to focus your search.)
Search by Facility ID
The Facility Identification (ID) is a seven-digit numeric code that is unique to each facility. If you know the Facility ID number, you can search for that specific facility. The search results screen will display the facility ID number for all facilities matching your search criteria.
Search by Facility/Company Name
Search by facility name. Be sure to try all possible variations of a facility's name. For example, if an abbreviation doesn't work, try using the whole words (i.e., East Broward Electric Company instead of EBECO). Try using just one or two words of the facility name (i.e., cement instead of Leon County Cement Company, LLC).
Search by Facility Type or Industry Group
Facilities in the ARMS database are categorized into Facility Types. This type is different than an SIC or NAICs because it describes how or why we regulate the facility.
Search by SIC Code or SIC Description
SIC Code: The Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) code describes the primary activity of the facility. The two-digit code available on the AirInfo search screen defines the major business sector; that is, the type of industry (e.g., electric utility, pulp and paper, sugar mill, etc.). If you know the four digit SIC Code you may search by this code here.
The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) is the standard used by federal statistical agencies in classifying business establishments for the purpose of collecting, analyzing and publishing statistical data related to the U.S. business economy.
Major Sources of Air Pollution - Also called "Title V sources": Facilities which meet the definition of a major source under the state's air regulations (see Chapter 62-210, F.A.C.) A major source is one for which actual or potential emissions are above the applicable major source threshold. Major source thresholds for regulated pollutants run from 100 tons per year down, depending on the pollutant toxicity and ambient air quality.
Synthetic Minor Sources of Air Pollution: Facilities that avoid major source requirements by accepting permit conditions which limit emissions below major source thresholds.
Minor Sources of Air Pollution: Minor sources (and sources operating under an air general permit entitlement) emit pollution below the major source thresholds. Some general permit sources operate under a "Title V general permit" because of which federal rules apply to the sources, not because of the amount of pollution they emit. Selecting minor and general permitted sources typically returns many small facilities such as concrete batch plants, dry cleaners, asphalt plants and non-metallic mineral processing plants (i.e., rock crushers).
Include Inactive Facilities (checkbox): Many facilities in the state database have been permanently shutdown, are on long-term standby, or are otherwise inactive. The state does not routinely inspect these facilities because they do not operate and therefore do not emit air pollution. By default, AirInfo will return only active facilities. If you know a facility exists and AirInfo is not displaying the facility on the search results screen, try selecting this option to include the inactive facilities in your search.
Search by Geographic Location
Compliance Office: Search for facilities within one of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) six district offices or eight county-specific local air programs.
County: To search for all the facilities in a specific county, select the appropriate county from the drop-down list.
Address, City, Zip: If you know the address of the facility, or the name of the road the facility is on, you can enter that information in the "address" box. To search for all the facilities in a specific city or zip code, enter the appropriate data. You can use part of the city name (i.e., Walton instead of Fort Walton Beach or Ft. Walton Bch). Use five-digit zip codes for searching in AirInfo.
Facility Summary Search Results
The AirInfo Facility Summary Search Results web page returns a table listing all the facilities that meet your search criteria. The facilities are initially listed in ascending order by Facility Name. You may change the order by clicking any of the ascending/descending sort arrows located under each column heading. If your search criteria results in multiple pages, then you can cycle through the results with the page navigation at the bottom of the results table.
Eight indicators are presented in the results table as column headings:
Facility Compliance Status
For more information about a particular facility, click Details under the Operation(s) column. That will open another page with multiple tabs, Facility Information, Compliance and Enforcement, Emissions, and Location. When you are generating a Facility Report, it will automatically open the Facility Information tab.
This category lets you search for facilities where violations have been found in the past. Historic data in AirInfo covers the past five years
Informal Enforcement Actions: The alleged violation was resolved without issuing a consent order or other formal document. Most informal enforcement actions do not involve an assessed penalty. Informal enforcement is typically reserved for first time or minor violations.
Formal Enforcement Actions: The alleged violation was resolved through issuance of a consent order or other formal document. Most formal enforcement actions involve an assessed penalty. Formal enforcement is typically reserved for repeat offenses or significant violations.
Note: Searching for informal enforcement and formal enforcement at the same time will only return those facilities that have had both types of enforcement actions within the selected time frames. Your search will return more facilities if you select only one or the other type of enforcement.
Search by Penalty History
This category lets you limit your search to only those facilities with penalties assessed by either (DEP) or a local air program. You can also opt to limit your search to facilities that performed a supplemental environmental project to offset some of the assessed penalty. Examples of such projects include reformulation of the facility's product (pollution prevention) and paying for school bus retrofits to reduce emissions (in-kind environmental projects). Historic data in AirInfo covers the past five years.
Compliance and Enforcement Summary Search Results
The AirInfo Compliance and Enforcement Summary Results web page returns a table listing all the facilities that meet your search criteria. The facilities are initially listed in ascending order by Facility Name. You may change the order by clicking any of the ascending/descending sort arrows located under each column heading If your search criteria results in more than 500 facilities, you can cycle through the results with the page navigation at the bottom of the results table.
Eleven indicators are presented in the results table as column headings:
Facility Compliance Status
Inspections (5 years)
Violations (5 years)
Formal Enforcement Actions (5 years)
Penalties Assessed (5 years)
Compliance and Enforcement Columns for Past 5 Years
Number of Inspections: Indicates the number of inspections that have taken place at the facility over the past five years. Inspections includes complaint inspections, compliance inspections, follow-up inspections, on-site sampling, and continuous monitor evaluations.
Violations: Indicates the number of violations that have been discovered at a facility over the past five years.
Formal Enforcement Actions: Displays how many formal enforcement actions have been brought against the facility within the past five years. Formal enforcement actions mean that the alleged violation was resolved through issuance of a consent order or other formal document. Most formal enforcement actions involve an assessed penalty. Formal enforcement is typically reserved for repeat offenses or significant violations.
Penalties Assessed: Displays the total amount of penalties assessed at the facility over the past five years. Penalty assessed includes dollars assessed as a penalty as well as dollars spent on supplemental environmental projects to offset some of the assessed penalty. Examples of such projects include reformulation of the facility's product (pollution prevention) and paying for school bus retrofits to reduce emissions (in-kind environmental projects).
Note: You may click on a column heading to sort the results list by the corresponding column in either ascending or descending order. At the bottom of the search results table you may click the Back to Search Criteria link to return to the search page.

For more information about a particular facility, click Details under the Operation(s) column. That will open another page with multiple tabs, Facility Information, Compliance and Enforcement, Emissions and Location. When you are generating an Emissions Summary Report, it will automatically open the Emissions Information tab.
When the report opens at this tab, the General Facility Information section is displayed at the top of the page and the Active Permits and Authorizations section below it.
Facility Detail - Active Permits and Authorizations
This section of the facility detail report lists all active permits and authorizations for the facility. The table includes permits that have been issued and that have not expired as well as authorizations that have become effective and have not expired. Expired permits or authorizations are not listed.
This is a unique ID number for each active permit or authorization. The code consists of 10 numbers followed by two letters. The first seven numbers identify the specific facility; they are the same as the facility ID number. The next three numbers identify the particular project (permit or authorization) for that facility. The final two letters indicate the type of project.
For active permits the ID number is a clickable link which will open the Air Permit Document Search (APDS) webpage. You may click the link to open the APDS search page in a separate window. The permit number and facility ID will be pre-filled and ready for you to perform a search in APDS. For General Permit authorizations the ID number is also a clickable link which provides an option to display the specific rule requirements for Rule 62-210.310, F.A.C.
Identifies the project (permit or authorization) type. The project types include the following:
Construction (permit) - AC: Issued to build a new facility or modify an existing facility.
Federally-enforceable State-issued Operating Permit (FESOP) - AF: Similar to an operating permit, but because it is federally-enforceable, it is used to establish synthetic minor limits.
General Permit (Authorization) - AGP: Some facilities are eligible to operate under an air general permit. This is an authorization by rule to construct or operate a specific type of air pollutant emitting facility.
Operating (Permit) - AO: Issued to authorize continued operation of a facility after it has been constructed.
Title V (Air Operation Permit) - AV: A federally-mandated state-issued operating permit. These are typically large, complex permits issued to major sources of air pollution.
Identifies the permit or authorization sub type, which provides a bit more detail about the type of permit or authorization. The project sub types include the following:
Admin Correction: Minor administrative changes to the permit, such as renumbering paragraphs or updating phone numbers or mailing addresses of the permittee.
Construction: Standard construction permit allowing a new facility or modification to an existing facility.
Initial: Initial Title V air operation permit issued to an existing facility that became subject to the Title V program or to a new facility that is subject to the Title V program.
Minor Modification: A minor modification to an existing facility.
Non-Title V GP: Identifies a source operating under a non-Title V (regular) air general permit entitlement.
Operating: Standard operating permit allowing continuing operation of a facility after it has been constructed.
PSD: Construction permit issued pursuant to the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) program. These permits establish Best Available Control Technology limitations for major pollutants.
Renewal: Renewal Title V air operation permit. Title V permits must be renewed every five years, and the renewal permitting process is as thorough as the initial permitting process.
Revision: Modification to the Title V air operation permit.
Title V GP: Identifies a source operating under a Title V air general permit entitlement.
Transfer: Transfer of ownership of the facility.
Contains a descriptive narrative of the particular project (permit or authorization). This field may be blank for a given project.
Issued/Effective and Expiration Date
Identifies the date that the permit was issued (or, for air general permits, that the authorization became effective). Also identifies the expiration date for the active permit or authorization.
Compliance and Enforcement tab
When the report opens at this tab, the General Facility Information section is displayed at the top of the page and the following reports underneath.
5 Year Summary
Formal Enforcement Actions: Displays how many formal enforcement actions have been brought against the facility within the past five years. Formal enforcement actions means that the alleged violation was resolved through issuance of a consent order or other formal document. Most formal enforcement actions involve an assessed penalty. Formal enforcement is typically reserved for repeat offenses or significant violations.
Penalties Assessed: Displays the total amount of penalties assessed at the facility over the past five years. Penalty assessed includes dollars assessed as a penalty as well as dollars spent on supplemental environmental projects to offset some of the assessed penalty. Examples of such projects include reformulation of the facility’s product (pollution prevention) and paying for school bus retrofits to reduce emissions (in-kind environmental projects).
5 Year Inspection History
Date: Indicates the date of the on-site inspection.
Inspection Type and Inspection Description: Indicates the type of inspection performed. On-site inspection types include the following:
Complaint Inspection: Inspection initiated to respond to a citizen complaint about the facility.
Compliance Inspection: Standard inspection by DEP or local program compliance inspectors. Goal of this type of inspection is to determine compliance with applicable air pollution control regulations for either all or a portion of the facility. Compliance inspections are routine and scheduled, but often unannounced to the facility.
Continuous Monitor Evaluation: Specialized inspection to evaluate the performance of a facility's continuous emission monitoring system.
Follow-up Inspection: Inspection in response to potential problems found during a routine compliance inspection or a complaint inspection.
Facililty in Compliance at Time of Inspection?: Indicates whether the inspector determined the facility to be in compliance ("No") or to be in minor or significant noncompliance ("Yes").
5 Year Compliance and Enforcement History
Date Violation Discovered: This is the date used to track the violation; it is the date the violation was discovered by DEP or local program staff. The discovery date is a clickable link. Select the violation date to pull up the facility violation detail screen for that violation.
Discovery Method: Indicates how the violation was discovered. Not all violations are discovered through on-site inspections. The methods of violation discovery include the following:
Review of Tests, Records or Reports: Facilities are required to submit records detailing their operation and emissions. A review of submitted records can sometimes reveal noncompliance. Failure to submit a required record is also considered noncompliance.
Inspection: Violation discovered during an on-site inspection or related activity.
Continuous Emission Monitor: Some facilities are required to maintain a monitoring system that continuously measures and records the amount of air pollution being emitted. Reviewing data from these monitors can sometimes reveal noncompliance. Failure to operate and maintain a required monitor is also considered noncompliance.
Dollars Assessed: Indicates the penalty assessed by DEP or a local program in response to noncompliance. The figure includes the recovery of any costs incurred by DEP or the local program during the investigation of the noncompliance.
Not all violations are resolved with an assessed penalty. If no penalty was assessed, this field will display a note saying "No Penalty."
Environmental Project Dollars: Indicates the dollar amount spent on supplemental environmental projects to offset some of the penalty that would otherwise have been assessed. Examples of such projects include reformulation of the facility's product (pollution prevention) and paying for school bus retrofits to reduce emissions (in-kind environmental projects). The figure in the environmental project dollars field may represent the entire dollar amount spent on the project (i.e., not just the amount of the project that offset a penalty). Investigation costs incurred by DEP or the local programs cannot be offset through environmental projects.
Total Penalty Assessed: Displays the total penalty assessed (i.e., the total financial impact on the company in response to the noncompliance). Total penalty assessed is the sum of dollars assessed (which includes penalty plus investigation costs) and environmental project dollars (which includes pollution prevention and in-kind environmental projects).
For example, if a facility was originally assessed $30,000, DEP or the local program may have allowed the facility to perform a supplemental environmental project. Some projects can offset an assessed penalty 1:1, while others require more to be spent on the project (1.5:1) than was originally assessed. If the facility offset $10,000 of the original assessment through a 1.5:1 project, then the 5-Year Compliance and Enforcement History will display the following:
Dollars assessed = $20,000 (the original $30,000 minus the $10,000 offset).
Environmental project dollars = $15,000 (1.5 times the $10,000 offset).
Total penalty assessed = $35,000 (the total financial impact of the noncompliance).
Operation(s): Click Details to display a facility's Detailed and Summary Information for the Violation, a list of the Violation Activities, Sources and Penalty details.
Facility Violation Details
When this page opens, the General Facility Information section is displayed at the top of the page followed by Summary Information for the Violation, a list of the Violation Activities, Sources and Penalty details.
The information is a copy of an internal report that displays information about how a particular violation was discovered, what actions were taken in response, how the violation was resolved, and what penalties – if any – were assessed. At the bottom of the facility violations detail screen you may click the New Search link to return to the Search page.
The violation summary section of the facility violation detail screen contains the following information:
Discovered Date: Indicates the discovery date of the violation.
Cash Balance Due: The unpaid portion of any assessed penalty.
Violation Description: A brief narrative description of the violation.
Violation Status: Indicates whether the violation is open, resolved, or closed.
The violation activities section of the facility violation detail screen lists the activities associated with the violation. The first activity listed is usually the initiating activity (i.e., the inspection or records review conducted that discovered the violation.) The violation activities table then lists the follow-up activities, through resolution, and culminating with closing the case.
Case closed occurs sometime after the case is resolved; resolved means DEP or the local program has addressed the violation either informally or formally. Case closed means all penalties have been collected and all follow-up activities have been completed. Depending on the circumstance, a violation may be resolved for a significant period of time before it is closed (for example, a facility may be on a payment plan to settle a large penalty).
Initiating Activity: Indicates which activity was the initiating activity, i.e., the activity associated with the violation discovery date.
Activity Type: Identifies the scope of the activity. The activity types include the following:
INSP: On-site compliance inspection.
TRPT: Review of tests, records or reports. Generally, this is not associated with an on-site compliance inspection.
AOR: Review of the annual operating report, a special report requiring the facility to document its annual production, operation, and emissions.
CEMS: Review of continuous emission monitoring system data.
RESV: Resolution activity associated with moving the case through the enforcement process.
Activity Description: Describes the specific activities undertaken in response to the violation. Typically, the activities listed will follow this general pattern:
Initiating Activity: The activity description will identify the type of inspection that was performed, the specific test report or record that was reviewed, etc.
Enforcement Process Activities: The data will reflect any issued warning letters, noncompliance letters, settlement meetings held and other similar activities.
Resolving Activity: The violation is resolved either through informal enforcement ("CWOE, compliance without formal enforcement action") or through formal enforcement (usually some sort of consent order is executed).
Closing Activity: After all penalties have been collected and all follow-up activities have been completed, the case will be closed ("CCDL, case closed by district or local").
Activity Completion Date: Indicates the date of the specific activity.
Initial Compliance Status: Indicates the change in compliance status of the facility over time. The initiating activity will set the facility's compliance status to either MNC (minor noncompliance) or SNC (significant noncompliance).
Current Compliance Status: Once the resolving activity is entered, the facility's compliance status will reset to "IN" compliance.
Complaint Lodged Against and Complaint Number: If the violation is the result of a complaint investigation, these fields will display who the complaint was lodged against and what number was assigned to the complaint for tracking purposes. The fields will be blank if the violation did not result from the investigation of a complaint.
Document(s): Click View to open a document(s) associated with the violation (e.g. inspection reports, warning letters, etc.)
Source Type: Indicates whether the violation is associated with specific emission units or with the facility as a whole. Emission units are discrete subsets of the facility. For example, a coal-fired electric utility plant is a facility, and the plant's individual boilers are distinct emission units of that facility.
Emission Unit # : The identifying number of the emission source.
Source Description: If the violation is associated with specific emission units, the table will contain a description of the applicable emission units.
Violation Type: Indicates the type of violation, using self-explanatory language.
The AirInfo web page will display a notice if no penalties were assessed for the specific violation. If penalties were assessed, AirInfo will display the following information about the penalty:
Penalty Activity: Identifies the activity performed through which the penalty was assessed (typically the execution of a consent order).
Date Performed: Date the penalty was assessed.
Total Assessed: Total penalty cost.
Penalty Status: Indicates whether the penalty has been assessed or paid.
Cash Balance Outstanding: Amount still due at the time the report was generated.
Penalty: Identifies whether the dollar amount displayed on that row of the penalties table is an assessed amount, amount due or amount paid.
Type: There are four types of dollar amounts that might be displayed in the penalties table:
CASH: This is a financial penalty assessed by DEP or the local program in response to the noncompliance.
COST: This is the costs of the investigation incurred by DEP or the local program.
INKD: This is an in-kind environmental project (such as paying to retrofit school buses and reduce their emissions) that offsets an otherwise assessed penalty at a ratio of 1.5:1.
PPRV: This is a pollution prevention project (such as reformulation of the facility's product to use inherently less polluting materials) that offsets an otherwise assessed penalty at a ratio of 1:1.
Amount: Dollar amount assessed, due, or paid.
Date: Date of the assessment, due date, or date of payment.
