The Department of Health is the designated agency to administer and coordinate a statewide air pollution control program, to promulgate regulations related to air pollution control, grant necessary permits to air pollution sources, and establish state ambient air quality standards.

Air quality rules or standards pertaining to coal conversion facilities, petroleum refineries, or oil and gas production and processing facilities may not be more stringent than federal standards, barring favorable results of stringent cost-benefit impact analyses. Additionally, section 23-25-11 specifically addresses the regulation of odors, including those resulting from manure management methods.
