The Evansville Municipal Code (EMC) 16.05.270 requires businesses or manufacturers in the jurisdiction of the EEPA (as defined in EMC 16.05.010) to obtain a Municipal Certificate of Operation (permit) from the EEPA, if that business or manufacturer has constructed, installed, modified, or operates any stationary or portable process equipment, which has potential emissions of any regulated air pollutant.  




These operating permits reference applicable federal, state and municipal regulations and outline specific requirements to the permitted business or industry. These permits may include work practice standards or emissions limits, thereby protecting air quality, public health and the environment.


Facilities permitted by the EEPA are required to report emissions on an annual basis and most are inspected annually for compliance.


Examples of facilities that require a Municipal Certificate of Operation are: 

  • Automobile refinishers
  • Surface coating operations
  • Abrasive blasting operations
  • Plastic processors
  • Concrete, Asphalt, and Aggregate operations
  • Grain processors
  • Dry Cleaners
  • Combustion units such as heaters, boilers, or incinerators.

These are just a few examples of facilities that require a Municipal Certificate of Operation. For more information or questions regarding permitting, please contact our agency at eepa@evansvillegov.orgor 812/435-6145.
