The report is a comprehensive review of the problem of reentrained dust from paved streets. Information was obtained from literature review, collection of unpublished data from traffic-related air and water pollution studies, survey of comments from public works officials, and five different field studies to evaluate the effectiveness of specific reentrained dust control measures. All of the assembled data show agreement that the effect of traffic-related particulate emissions in the form of reentrained dust is one of the most important sources of particulate matter in metropolitan areas. The results of the field studies conducted in the project and analysis of six other studies were inconclusive with regard to the effectiveness of improved street cleaning as a means of improving air quality. None of the street cleaning methods proved to be effective in all studies in which they were evaluated. In addition, the data generated in the field studies did not show a consistent relationship between street surface loadings and nearby particulate concentrations. The report gives information on the costs for conventional street cleaning operations and possible modifications to improve air quality. Examples of existing state and local regulations and ordinances for controlling reentrained dust are presented.
