SCAQMD Rule 1466

Monitoring construction & remediation sites not only in California

Air quality at construction & remediation sites is crucial, not just for the health of the workers but also for the surrounding community. Rule 1466 sets specific requirements for these sites to ensure air pollution is minimized.

South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) is the regulatory agency responsible for improving air quality for large areas of Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties, including the Coachella Valley. South Coast AQMD controls emissions primarily from stationary sources of air pollution. About 25,500 such businesses are operating under South Coast AQMD permits.

Their rule 1466 aims to minimize off-site fugitive dust emissions from earth-moving activities at sites containing specific toxic air contaminants by establishing dust control measures. It establishes specific requirements for monitoring, dust control, notification, and documentation.

Rule 1466 is not only relevant in California. Many other states also refer to this rule, forming the basis of regulatory requirements.
