The APCD wants to hear from you!
The Air Pollution Control District (APCD) protects air quality in Louisville to ensure that it is healthy and safe to breathe. To help you learn more about our work, APCD is developing a series of workshops for our community. As a delegated Clean Air Act agency, several of these will be in partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
We are asking you to take a few minutes to complete this short survey. Your responses will help APCD determine which workshops and educational resources we should develop to better serve our community.
Note: When you see an asterisk * next to a question, it means this question is required to complete the survey.
First, tell us a little more about your familiarity with the APCD and air quality.
