Dust​

The City of Phoenix works to promote healthy outdoor air for all citizens. The City commit​s by 2050 that we will achieve a level of air quality that is healthy for humans and the natural environment. This includes out performing all federal standards and achieving a visibility index of good or excellent on 90% of days or more.  (Depending on the year, Phoenix currently achieves this good or excellent visibility rating on 70-80% of days.) 

What we are doing to reduce dust:

  • Paving and stabilization of streets, lots and alleys
  • Enforcing dust code violations (Phoenix City Codes 23-85.01B1&(3-4), 24-51, 36-145A)​​
  • Collaborating with regional partners to promote healthy air in the valley

What you can do to reduce dust:

  • Avoid using lawn mowers and leaf blowers over dusty areas
  • Never use a leaf blower to blow debris out of truck beds or trailers or into the streets
  • Prevent unwanted vehicle access to vacant lots and areas with landscaping, fencing,  signs or berms
  • Don't drive on road shoulders except in emergencies
  • Report violations to the Phoenix Police Department at 602-262-6151

Smoke

In Phoenix, a combination of wood burning and stagnant weather conditions can create poor air quality during the winter season. In an effort to reduce smoke produced by wood-burning,​ the Maricopa County Air Quality Department offers residents programs encouraging​ alternatives to wood burning. 

​​The Maricopa County Fireplace Retrofit Program​ retrofits existing wood-burning fireplaces to gas. You must be in the program boundaries to apply. The program boundaries are Baseline Road to Northern Avenue and 59th Avenue to 16th Street.​

The Propane Fire Pit Program gives Maricopa County residents a $75 voucher to buy a propane fire pit at participating Home Depot stores. 

​Both of these programs allow you to burn on No Burn Days as they provide zero-emission alternatives to wood burning. ​
