The report summarizes the results of field testing of the effectiveness of control measures for sources of fugitive particulate emissions found at construction sites. The effectiveness of watering temporary unpaved travel surfaces on emissions of particulate matter with aerodynamic diameters of < 10 micrometers (PM-10) was tested in Beloit, Kansas, during Septemeber 1999. The tested operation was scraper transit. The effectiveness of paved and graveled access aprons on mud/dirt trackout from unpaved truck exit routes was tested in Grandview, Missouri, during November 1999. In the latter tests, moisture content and soil type were varied to determine if watering of exit routes, while reducing on-site emissions, might offset the effect of increasing emissions attributable to in-place mud/dirt trackout controls.
