New Construction and General Fugitive Dust Rules go into effect June 1st

Air Quality

The Pinal County Board of Supervisors in response to the West Pinal PM10 Nonattainment Area redesignation to Serious PM10 Nonattainment, adopted new, more stringent construction and general fugitive dust rules which go into effect June 1st.

West Pinal Construction Fugitive Dust

The new West Pinal construction fugitive dust rules are at this link.

There is a new West Pinal construction dust permit application/dust control plan. If you have a construction project within West Pinal that will be 0.1 acres or larger in ground disturbance, a West Pinal construction dust permit is required.

Please use the instructions while filling out a West Pinal construction dust permit application/dust control plan.

West Pinal Basic & Comprehensive Dust Control Certification Requirements:

  • Basic - Water truck and water pull drivers, Site Superintendent's sites 1+ acres
  • Comprehensive - Dust Control Coordinator (DCC) on sites 5 acres and larger during preliminary earth moving. See rules for full details.

In lieu of a formal training course, anyone required to be certified (Basic and/or Comprehensive) are encouraged to open and read the rules prior to taking the respective quiz (links below). 

Note: Maricopa County Rule 310 certification will NOT be accepted as the new West Pinal Construction fugitive dust rules differ. 

Other forms associated with West Pinal construction projects (i.e. daily self-inspection dust log, certified employees list, closeout form) can be found online at the Air Quality Permitting Forms webpage under the West Pinal Nonattainment Area Dust Permits section.
