The Maricopa County Air Quality Department was recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency last week during the 11th annual Clean Air Excellence Awards. The award was presented for the department’s development of a Dust Handbook and Field Guide to help the business/construction community better understand and comply with Rule 310 (controlling fugitive dust from dust-generating operations). The handbook was created over the course of several months with staff working together with stakeholders. The information explains dust control rules and how they apply to different activities.
Only 12 groups in the country were recognized at the awards ceremony in Washington, D.C.
