INTERIM OPERATIONS NOTICE– COVID-19 RESPONSE
In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) and in an effort to help curtail the spread of the virus, DES has closed its public counter. We are implementing the following interim changes to our operations until further notice.
Dust Control Operating Permit Applications
Dust Control Operating Permit applications will be accepted only electronically at email@example.com, and will be reviewed/processed accordingly. DAQ is deferring payment for the permit acreage fees at this time. Payment will be collected at a later date once normal operations are resumed.
Dust Class Registrations
Dust Class registration forms can be submitted electronically at firstname.lastname@example.org without a designated class date listed. DAQ will contact the registrant to confirm a class date and collect payment once normal operations are resumed. If your dust card expired or is expiring during this time period, DAQ will still honor the card.
Asbestos NESHAP Notifications
Asbestos NESHAP Notification of Asbestos Abatement forms, NESHAP Demolition Notification forms, and asbestos surveys will be accepted only electronically at email@example.com and will be reviewed accordingly. Payment for the asbestos program fees will be collected at a later date once normal operations are resumed.
Stationary Source applications will be accepted only electronically, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Emailed applications must be submitted from the email address of the responsible official.
Processing of applications will be prioritized to address the operational needs of our customers. Applications for new permits and significant revisions to existing permits will receive greater priority. Application filing fees, along with review and issuance fees, will be invoiced when permits are ready to be issued.
Annual Report Submittals
All 2019 annual reports will be accepted only electronically email@example.com. Annual reports are still due on or before March 31, 2020; however, DAQ will use enforcement discretion on annual reports submitted after the deadline.
Unless you are classified as a Major Part 70 source, all annual report submittals must use the Annual Emissions Inventory Reporting Forms supplied by DAQ at the following link or a separate pre-approved form authorized by the Control Officer: DAQ Annual Emissions Forms. Each submitted report must include the responsible official's signature.
Test Notification Forms for Gasoline Dispensing Operations (GDO)
All vapor test notifications for gasoline dispensing operations will be accepted only electronically at AQCompliance@Clarkcountynv.gov. Faxes will not be accepted at this time. It is still mandatory that you use DAQ's GDO Test Notification Form. Each test notification form must include the responsible official's signature.
Every effort will be made to approve the test notification form prior to the test date; however, if no approval or disapproval is received from DAQ prior to the anticipated test date, testing can proceed as scheduled.
Stack Testing and Relative Accuracy Test Audit (RATA) Protocols
All stack testing and RATA protocols will be accepted only electronically at AQCompliance@Clarkcountynv.gov. Faxes will not be accepted at this time. Please refer to DAQ's Air Quality Source Testing Guidelines for protocol submittals.
Every effort will be made to approve the test protocol prior to the test date; however, if no approval or disapproval is received from DAQ prior to the anticipated test date, testing can proceed as scheduled. DAQ billing invoice may not be included with the protocol approval letter; and, will instead be sent at a later date once normal operations are resumed.
Vapor Testing, Stack Testing and RATA Reports
All vapor testing reports, stack testing and RATA reports will be accepted only electronically at AQCompliance@Clarkcountynv.gov. It is still mandatory that you use DAQ's GDO Test Results Submittal Form. Each test results form must include the responsible official's signature. For stack testing and RATA reports submittals please refer to DAQ's Air Quality Source Testing Guidelines.
These notification forms and reports will be reviewed and processed by DAQ staff as quickly as possible. Documentation of whether the report was found acceptable or not will be sent by DAQ staff as soon as possible to the responsible official for that source.
