To streamline regional regulations relating to air quality, Pima County’s Department of Environmental Quality (PDEQ) recently published proposed amendments to update language in a county code.
The proposal, entitled "Notice of Proposed Rulemaking," complies with the need for PDEQ to periodically revise documents.
In this case, the amendments for County Code Title 17 were drafted to more clearly delineate between Class I (major source) rules, Class II, Class III rules and Activity Permit rules.
A public hearing before the Pima County Board of Supervisors is slated for 9 a.m. July 11 in the county’s Board Hearing Room 130 W. Congress St., First floor, in Tucson.
During this session, Pima County officials will discuss revisions to provisions for general and individual permits, ambient air quality standards, emission limitations and matters pertaining to infringements and/or conditional orders.
Public comments can be submitted in writing by mailing material to PDEQ, attn: Sarah Reitmeyer, 33 N. Stone Ave., Suite 700, Tucson, AZ 85701; or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The department will accept public comments until 5 p.m. June 12.
