Dust Permit Application Training

The Maricopa County Air Quality Department is now offering a free comprehensive training class for dust permitting. The class will assist those who need help completing their dust permit application. Training will be held on Wednesday, February 1, 2012 from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. at the department’s offices, on the 9th floor.

The Air Quality Department issues Dust Control Permits to citizens who plan to conduct activities that will disturb a surface area equal to or greater than 0.1 acre or the demolition of buildings. These permits require the permittee to plan their dust control measures to prevent the creation of fugitive dust. All sites with disturbed surface areas, regardless of size, must maintain compliance with Rule 310.



This training class is open to all members of the public.  To ensure we have room for you, please RSVP to Ken Hooker, SBA Office, 602-506-5102.  Department representatives will answer your questions and will be able to issue your dust permit within 24-48 hours.
