Construction Dust control

For your next construction dust control program let us show you what Terra Seal Xtream (TSX) can do for you. See our PDF document on Erosion and Dust control 

Our product Terra Seal Xtream (TSX) sits on the leading edge of technology for products specifically designed with dust control, road dust control, soil stabilization, erosion control and soil permeability enhancement as the end objective.  For more information regarding Terra Seal Xtream (TSX) please visit our main product page.

I. Definition

Construction Dust control includes practices used to reduce or  prevent the surface and air transport of dust during construction. Construction Dust control measures for construction activities include minimization of soil disturbance, applying mulch and establishing vegetation, water spraying, surface roughening, applying polymers, spray-on tackifiers, chlorides, and barriers.

II. Purpose

This practice may be used to:

� Reduce wind erosion and dust.

� Minimize deposition of dust and wind transported soils into water bodies through runoff or wind action.

� Reduce respiratory problems.

� Minimize low visibility conditions caused by airborne dust.

III. Conditions Where Practice Applies

Construction Dust control measures may be applied at any construction site, but is particularly important for sites with dry exposed soils which may be exposed to wind or vehicular traffic.

IV. Federal, State, and Local Laws

Users of this standard shall comply with applicable federal, state and local laws, rules, regulations or permit requirements governing this practice. This standard does not contain the text of federal, state, or local laws.

V. Criteria

This section establishes the minimum standards for design, installation and performance requirements.

A. The implementation of Construction Dust control shall limit the area exposed for dust generation.

B. Asphalt and petroleum based products cannot be used for Construction Dust control.

C. Mulch and Vegetation - Mulch or seed and mulch may be applied to protect exposed soil from both wind and water erosion..

D. Water - Water until the surface is wet and repeat as needed. Water shall be applied at rates so that runoff does not occur. Treated soil surfaces that receive vehicle traffic require a stone tracking pad or tire washing at all point of access.

E. Tillage - A control measure performed with chisel type plows on exposed soils. Tillage shall begin on the windward side of the site. Tillage is only applicable to flat areas.

F. Polymers - Polymers can be an effective practice for areas that do not receive vehicle traffic. Dry applied polymers must be initially watered for activation to be effective for Construction Dust control.

G. Tackifiers and Soil Stabilizers Type A -Products must be selected from and installed at rates conforming to the Erosion Control 

H. Chlorides - Chlorides shall be applied according to the most recent version of the  Standard Specifications for Highway and Bridge Construction.

I. Barriers - Barriers shall be placed at right angles to prevailing wind currents at intervals of about 15 times the barrier height. Solid board fences, snow fences, burlap fences, crate walls, bales of hay and similar material can be used to control air currents and blown soil.

VI. Considerations

Some sites may require an approach that utilizes a combination of measures for Construction Dust control.

VII. Plans and Specifications

Plans and specifications for Construction Dust control practices shall be in keeping with this standard and shall describe the requirements for applying the practice to achieve its intended purpose.

VIII. Operation and Maintenance

Areas that have Construction Dust control practices shall at a minimum be inspected daily
