Twenty divisions of the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources are responsible for aspects of environmental quality. Included are the Division of Air Quality, which monitors the quality of outdoor air (including problems such as smoke, haze, and noxious fumes), and the Division of Water Quality, which monitors the quality of surface and groundwater resources.

Each of these agencies also carries out enforcement actions against violators. The Division of Soil and Water Conservation conducts programs to slow loss of topsoils, control agricultural pollution, protect watersheds, and map wetlands.

In 2008 the state had 32 hazardous waste sites on a national priority list for cleanup due to their severity or proximity to people. Some progress was being made in efforts to reduce pollution; in the period 1995–2000 the amount of toxic chemicals discharged into the environment was reduced by 29 percent.
