Air Quality Compliance Plan

A compliance plan is needed for any activity which may cause particulate fugitive emissions to be released into the ambient air and which is conducted on an on-going basis in the same locality.  Continuous activities include but are not limited to street deicing and traction material activities, loading and unloading of material that may cause fugitive emissions and for a site with ongoing soil fill/borrow operations.  Anyone obtaining a compliance plan must follow Pennington County Ordinance No. 12 and Rapid City Municipal Code Chapter 8.34.  The purpose of these ordinances is to provide for a program of fugitive emissions control by applying reasonably available control technology.   

No person shall place any street deicing and traction materials upon any road, highway, driveway, or parking lot to which the public has general access which does not meet the following requirements:

  1. A durability or hardness as defined in Mohs scale of greater than 6 for 70% of the material used and
  2. No more than 3% of the total particle material content by weight may be smaller than 200 sieve.

For street deicing and traction materials, these criteria apply only to the material prior to the addition of salt or chemicals. 

Application & Fees

The fee for a Compliance Plan is $150.  The fee is payable to the City of Rapid City and shall be collected by the Finance Department from the applicant after being notified by the Air Quality Division that the application has been processed and is ready to be signed for and picked up at the Building Permits counter.
