Air - SC Ports Authority


Air quality is at the top of everyone’s environmental list today. Charleston is fortunate to have good air quality that is getting better with each passing year. SCPA is focused on improving air quality and has committed to implement a variety of emissions-reducing programs. SCPA’s emissions inventories and air monitoring efforts allow us to track our efforts over time and identify the emissions reductions measures that make the most sense.

In an effort to stay engaged in the well-being of our communities, SCPA participates in numerous air working groups, including the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control organized North Charleston Air Monitoring Workgroup and the Berkeley Charleston Dorchester Council of Government’s Air Quality Coalition.
