How to Complain about Blowing Sand in the Valley
PALM DESERT - You've probably seen those signs around town urging you to complain if you see blowing sand or dust from a construction site or vacant lot.
But who is supposed to so something about it? Turns out...it depends where you live.
In Palm Springs...the city's Public Works Department has an inspector dedicated to these type of complaints. Her name is Claudia Trembus. She can be reached at 760-323-8253
The South Coast Air Quality Management District is legally responsible for enforcing anti-smog laws and regulations....and blowing dust falls into that category.
You can file a complaint with the AQMD by calling 1-800-CUT-SMOG (800-288-7664) or online here.
