Air Quality Department Streamlines Dust Application

PHOENIX - In its continuing effort to improve customer service the Maricopa County Air Quality Department (MCAQD) has simplified its Dust Application form.


The previous 43 page document has been consolidated to just seven pages, depending on the type of permit request, making the application much more user-friendly. The new application, which must be filled out online, includes drop down menus and pop-up instructions when needed.

This project was initiated at the behest of Maricopa County Board of Supervisor Steve Chucri, who highlighted the project in his, “First 100 Days in Office.” (

“I am committed to bringing a business mindset to local government. This new reform proves the County can be business and user friendly, while fulfilling a regulatory role,” Maricopa County Supervisor Steve Chucri said. “I look forward to working with county departments on achieving more results like this.”

The condensed application is another step in simplifying the permit process for MCAQD customers. The next step is to allow customers to submit fees online using a credit card. This will enable 24/7 online permit submittal.

 “This easy-to–navigate document simplifies the process for both our customers and the department,” Maricopa County Air Quality Director Bill Wiley said. “I appreciate the support of Supervisor Chucri and the Air Quality staff, who made this all possible.”
