Air Quality's Source Testing Program provides an independent means
to audit company source test results and emission compliance status.
The program also provides a direct means of responding to citizen
concerns with the capability of performing source tests for toxics,
observing risk and trial burns at incinerators and other sources
of concern. The Bureau maintains two source testing vans equipped
with various instruments.
