- Clark County Department of Air Quality and Environmental Management (DAQEM) has regulatory primacy over dust issues. The BMI Common Areas project is in full compliance with DAQEM requirements.
- DAQEM's dust control permit sets the guidelines for what precautions the developer

- To report a violation of the County's air quality regulations, please contact the County's Dust Control Hotline at: Phone: (702) 385-DUST (3878) — Outside the local Las Vegas calling area:
Call (toll free) 1-866-407-6965. Or you can email them at: DustHotline@co.clark.nv.us
- In addition, the NDEP has required supplemental air monitoring as detailed in the project Perimeter Air Monitoring Plan (PAMP). Of note, the PAMP requires air monitoring for a number specific chemicals and the data obtained from this monitoring is compared to hyper-conservative "action levels". This information is closely reviewed by BMI and the NDEP.
