  • General Permits

    PDEQ has expanded its use of general permits to authorize activities under various environmental regulations. General permits streamline the permitting of classes of facilities or activities that are sufficiently similar in design or operation to warrant general requirements or conditions.

    When requesting a General Permit for use in Pima County, please mail application and $540 fee to:

    Pima County Department of Environmental Quality
    Air Permits Section
    33 N. Stone Ave, Suite 700
    Tucson, AZ 85701-1429
