Air Quality Issues Compliance Assurance Model

MARICOPA COUNTY, December 1, 2011 — Focusing on a collaborative method to achieve clean air, the Air Quality Department implements its Compliance Assurance strategic vision. 


“We do our job by implementing and enforcing our statutes, ordinances and rules,” states Air Quality Department Director Bill Wiley. “Compliance Assurance is nothing more than fully implementing these authorities, essentially striving for 100% compliance. With compliance comes cleaner air.”


The department regulates nearly 6,000 businesses through air quality rules, permitting, monitoring and compliance.  Through education, outreach, business assistance and enforcement, the department will impart its Compliance Assurance model. 


“When businesses and individuals are in compliance with air quality standards, we all benefit by enjoying better air quality,” explains Wiley.  “Breathing clean and healthy air is a fundamental and critical need for all of us – our families, our friends, our children.”
