Are You A Good Neighbor?
Aggregate plant dust control is a big concern for a busy, thriving aggregate facility. The plant is a beehive of activity from dawn to often way past dusk. All of that activity creates the products that you sell to your customers. But how is your relationship with your neighbors? Have dust complaints increased on windy days? Are you cringing in anticipation of the next breezy or very busy day?
New residential and business developments are springing up across the nation. Just take a drive down a street you haven’t been to in a while, you will see a new housing development or retail space going up. The explosive growth of the real estate market in for both large and small cities has been a boon to the aggregate industry. It has created more demand for the product but also presents real challenges for busy plants and yards. Even in industrial areas, there are companies that will file a report if trucks are driving on the access roads or around the yard and it creates dust.
Water – Not A Long Term Solution
Are you watering multiple times a day to keep the aggregate plant blowing dust to a minimum and prevent a visit from DEQ? It may be a good short-term solution but have you evaluated the long-term costs? Factor in the water bill, the driver time and the wear and tear on the equipment. It is costing more money than applying an eco-friendly, all natural dust control and soil stabilization product. When Desert Mountain Corporation applies one of our customized products to the roads and yards, it frees up driver time and equipment resources. And although many states have not faced water rationing yet, the situation that continues in California is a warning of what could come about. This Quick Reference Dust Control Guide from ADOT (Arizona Department of Transportation) has some great basic information along with Arizona regulations.
