Current Activities and Projects
- South Dakota's Volkswagen Mitigation Trust website will be used to track the progress of Volkswagen's Settlement Agreement, provide an avenue for public input on the mitigation plan, and track DENR's progress in developing and implementing its mitigation plan. A bill is being proposed for the 2019 legislative session to authorize spending authority for the VW mitigation trust funds. Contingent upon the bill passing, the initial mitigation funding project will be used for school, shuttle and transit bus replacement. Information and application forms are available on the Clean Diesel Program webpage.
- Clean Diesel Grant Program (Bus Replacement) Round Eleven ranking list has been posted and applications are still be accepted.
- Proposed Revisions to Air Fees webpage will be used to publish any updates for the proposed increase of air fees. The hearing scheduled for October 10, 2018, has been cancelled.

- Interactive webpage listing facilities regulated in South Dakota under the Clean Air Act. The webpage identifies those facilities that have a Title V operating permit or a Minor operating permit. In addition, the webpage identifies those facilities that are applicable to a federal regulation but do not require a permit in South Dakota, which are often referred to as an area source. Where applicable, a copy of the facility's current permit, a copy of DENR's narrative regulatory review, called a statement of basis, and DENR's most recent inspection report are provided. Although DENR makes every attempt to ensure the information placed on this web site is accurate and current, the user should understand that the information is not guaranteed to be correct or complete. Conclusions or actions taken (based upon the maps and the information contained therein) are the sole responsibility of the user.
