    NOTICE OF FINAL RULEMAKING
    RELATING TO AIR QUALITY REVISED
    OPEN BURNING PERMIT FEES AND CLARIFICATION OF
    TERMS OF RESIDENTIAL, CONSTRUCTION, AND 
    AGRICULTURAL OPEN BURN PERMITS

    The Pima County Board of Supervisors (PC-BOS) as the governing body for the Pima County Air Quality Control District adopts rules for Pima County Code (PCC). The Pima County Air Quality Control District operates within the Pima County Department of Environmental Quality (PDEQ). PDEQ proposed these updates to PCC by and through the rulemaking process set forth by the PC-BOS. The control officer initiated this rule in order to simplify the fee schedule for residential, construction, and agriculture open burning permits, and to clarify terms of residential, construction, and agricultural burning permits. These updates include changes to PCC Sections 17.14.080 and 17.14.090.

    The Notice of Final Rulemaking and other related information is available at the PDEQ office, on the Pima County Homepage, and on the PDEQ website, or you may request a copy by contacting our department.

    For additional information please contact Sarah Reitmeyer, Regulatory Program Manager, at (520) 724-7437 or visit PDEQ's Draft, Proposed, & Final Rules Website.
