Rule 1466 – Control of Particulate Emissions from Soils with Toxic Air Contaminants

The purpose of Rule 1466 is to minimize off-site fugitive dust emissions containing toxic air contaminants by establishing dust control measures that can be implemented during earth-moving activities at sites that contain certain toxic air contaminants.

Rule 1466 focuses on the toxic air contaminants listed in Table I of the rule.  The provisions in Rule 1466 include ambient PM10 monitoring, dust control measures, notification, signage, and recordkeeping requirements.  Rule 1466 allows for alternative dust control measures, ambient dust concentration limits, and other provisions provided they are approved by the Executive Officer.

Notifications

Rule 1466 requires notifications prior to beginning earth-moving activities and when ambient PM10 dust concentration limits are exceeded.  Submit all Rule 1466 notifications to Rule1466@aqmd.gov.  SCAQMD is working on a web notification tool that will be available shortly.  

Alternative Provision Request

If an owner or operator or designating agency elects to request an alternative provision, the owner or operator or designating agency must submit all the information necessary to substantiate their reasoning that an alternative provision is needed.  Submit all Rule 1466 alternative provision requests to Rule1466@aqmd.gov.  SCAQMD is working on a web notification tool that will be available shortly.

Executive Officer Pre-Approved PM10 Monitors

The PM10 monitoring method must be a federal equivalent method or an Executive Officer approved method.  The alternative PM10 monitor must meet the requirements in Appendix I of the rule.  Click here for a list of pre-approved PM10 monitors.
