    The Pima County Board of Supervisors (BOS) as the governing body for the Pima County Air Quality Control District adopts ordinances which are codified in the Pima County Code (PCC).  The Pima County Air Quality Control District operates within the Pima County Department of Environmental Quality (PDEQ).  PDEQ periodically proposes updates to PCC through the BOS.  PDEQ is proposing updating incorporations by reference for the following federal regulations: Acid Rain, National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP), New Source Performance Standards (NSPS), and other parts of Title 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).  The federal regulations would be incorporated as of July 1, 2019.  PDEQ's intention is to continue its delegated authority from EPA to implement and enforce these programs in Pima County.  In addition, PDEQ is updating the definition of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) in Section 17.04.340 to conform to federal regulations.  The expedited rule text 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.


    A public hearing before the Pima County Board of Supervisors will be held on Tuesday, December 17, 2019 at, or after, 9:00 a.m. in the Board Hearing Room, located at 130 W. Congress, 1st floor, Tucson, Arizona.  Comments pertaining to the Notice of Expedited Rulemaking may be submitted at the above noticed public hearing.
