Three control technologies were evaluated for effectiveness in controlling mud/dirt carryout from an unpaved construction access area onto an adjacent paved road. The first control used a street sweeper to mechanically sweep the dirt and debris from the paved road surface. The second applied 6- to 12-in layer of woodchip/mulch material onto the access area of the construction site to a distance of 100 ft from the paved road. The third control applied a 6-in layer of gravel over the access area. These silt loading reduction result in the following calculated PM-10 reductions: street sweeping, 14%; woodchips, 27 to 33%; and gravel, 42 to 52%.
