    The Pima County Board of Supervisors (PC-BOS) as the governing body for the Pima County Air Quality Control District adopts rules for 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 by and through the rulemaking process set forth by the PC-BOS.  The intention of this rulemaking was to conform to the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) in an effort to achieve consistency and accuracy in Title 17 of the PCC.  PDEQ added new and updated incorporations by reference of 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 CFR.  The federal regulations for Acid Rain, NESHAP, and the NSPS in effect July 1, 2019 were incorporated.  The intention in updating the incorporations by reference is to continue the Pima County Air Quality Control District’s delegated authority from EPA to implement and enforce the Acid Rain, NESHAP, and NSPS programs in Pima County.  These updates include changes to Sections PCC 17.04.070, PCC 17.04.340, PCC 17.11.160, PCC 17.12.040, PCC 17.12.070, PCC 17.16.390, PCC 17.16.490, and PCC 17.16.530. The final 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.
