Construction Dust Control
Construction dust control is a necessary part of projects of all sizes. Due to regulations by government entities at all levels, contractors and sub-contractors must take active steps to ensure that the air and water quality are not compromised by fugitive dust during their projects – or pay the fines.
What If Watering Doesn’t Work?
Simply using water on access roads, yards, stockpiles, and parking lots can seem like a good solution, but the expense can add up. And if there are water shortages or restrictions, your dust control plan could hit a snag.
By applying an environmentally friendly dust control solution, companies can reduce water usage by up to 50%. It also allows the use of water truck personnel on other more critical tasks.
Limitations of Only Using A Water Truck
According to EPA.gov in their fact sheet, Stormwater Best Management Practice, Dust Control, "Applying water to exposed soils can be time-intensive and - if done to excess - could result in discharge from the site or vehicles tracking mud onto public roads." Then you have a whole other set of issues with the inspectors, tracked out materials.
One Product Does Not Fit All
We believe that dust control is not a “one product fits all” industry. Desert Mountain Corporation offers many solutions to address the different levels of construction dust control needed – and the different soil types that may be involved.
Some areas with no traffic require a surface crust to lock down the soil, and others that will have frequent traffic require a more flexible solution. We also have water conservation solutions that can be added to a water truck to stretch the amount of water being used.
