The Environmental Section, AIR-EE, serves as the divisional coordinator for matters relating to environmental compliance at all 15 State operated airports. Subject matters include, but are not limited to: stormwater, water quality, wastewater, hazardous waste, petroleum storage, and contaminated media. AIR-EE oversees these environmental matters as they relate to airport operations, tenant facilities, construction sites, drainage infrastructure, and asset management.

Passenger Facility Charge (PFC) Program

The Passenger Facility Charge (PFC) Program is authorized by the Federal Aviation Administration for the collection of PFC fees up to $4.50 for every enplaned passenger at commercial airports controlled by public agencies. The fees are then used by the airports to fund FAA-approved projects that enhance safety, security, or capacity; reduce noise; or increase air carrier competition.


Airports around the world are creating opportunities to collaborate with stakeholders and develop strategies that integrate operational efficiency and economic viability with natural resource conservation and social responsibility. DOT-A joins these airports with the launch of the new SustainableDOT-A (sDOT-A) program.
