ES/E&TS assists City departments with Pima County Air Quality Code compliance. All City facilities are required to observe the regulations set forth in the Pima County Air Quality Code, Title 17. All permitted City of Tucson facilities submit annual air emission inventory forms and self-certification compliance forms, and keep records of products that have the potential to impact air quality.
Although only twelve City facilities are required to maintain an air quality permit, the City of Tucson also takes measures to insure that air quality is not affected by City operations which do not require an air permit. For example, the City uses water trucks in daily operations to control dust while also properly maintaining all fuel operated equipment.
