Comprehensive Dust Control Training - Dust Control Coordinators
For Township 1 North Range 8 East (Apache Junction Area)

For job sites located in Township 1 North Range 8 East and spanning five or more acres Arizona Revised Statute §49-474.05 requires permitees to have a Dust Control Coordinator onsite at all times during primary dust generating operations (for example earthmoving operations). Among other qualifications a Dust Control Coordinator must have completed comprehensive Dust Control Training.

At this time, Pinal County does not have a formal comprehensive training program for Dust Control Coordinators. Instead, the Pinal County Air Quality Director has decided to honor certifications issued by Maricopa County, which operates a certification program under the same statutory mandate.

For projects that require an on-site Dust Control Coordinator, anyone who has a current Comprehensive Dust Control Training Certification under a program approved by the Maricopa County Air Quality Department will be deemed to have adequate credentials to act as a Dust Control Coordinator in the affected portion of Pinal County.
