Air Quality Now Accepts Online Payment For Dust Applications

Maricopa County Air Quality Department (MCAQD) is continuing to improve customer service by providing the public the opportunity to submit their Dust Control Application and fees online, with a credit or debit card.


This application, by providing 24/7 online submittal, will be convenient for customers and save them time and gas. It also helps keep our air clean by eliminating the need to drive to county offices.


Maricopa County Board of Supervisor Steve Chucri initiated this project and highlighted it in his first 100 days in office."  (

“This is another positive step for the county,” Supervisor Chucri said. “We are making it easier to do business in and with Maricopa County. I’m pleased that the Air Quality Department is making the permitting process simpler and more convenient.”

The acceptance of online application and fees is the second phase in MCAQD’s ongoing efforts to simplify the dust permit process.  The first stage was to consolidate the counties previous 43 page dust permit application to just seven pages. The new application includes drop down menus and pop-up instructions when needed and makes the application much more user-friendly.

Since the inception of the new streamlined dust application on April 19, 2013, there have been a total of 504 applications processed.  Of those applications 41% were submitted using the new electronic form.

“Judging by the use of the new form it is clearly something that our customers wanted,” Maricopa County Air Quality Director Bill Wiley said. “The online payment will enhance the process.”
