The Air Pollution Control Board shall advise the Department of Public Health and the Board of Health on all matters pertaining to the control of air pollution and shall make reasonable regulations, not contrary to any statute or ordinance or to the regulations of the Board of Health, controlling air pollution.
Sources: Ordinance of the City of Philadelphia, June 25, 1948.
Purposes: The function of the Air Pollution Control Board is limited to the promulgation of administrative regulations since provision is made elsewhere in the Charter for uniform licensing practices and ultimately, enforcement procedures. See Article V, Chapter 10. Air pollution control regulation is made a function of a board of experts because of the technical nature of the subject. The regulations of the Board must not conflict with any statute or ordinance or the general regulations of the Board of Health.
