A study of possible PM10 non-attainment sites was conducted by Pace and Hanks of the U.S. EPA in 1984. This investigation showed that about half of these sites are in areas having less than 20 inches of precipitation per year. Also, 10 percent of the sites were in dry rural areas with no apparent traditional sources nearby. The purpose of this project is (1) determine the nature of the sources having an impact on these sites, (2) determine to what extent meteorology plays a role in high measured particulate matter concentrations, and (3) develop possible remedies to a potential non-attainment situation in areas with little rainfall. This report presents the results of three analyses that were designed to answer these questions. A microinventory was performed on 20 sites. These sites were then compared to sites in the US EPA's IP Network and similarities and differences were analyzed. An evaluation of the relationship between meteorological variables and measured concentrations was made. The report discusses the results of these analyses and alternate control remedies to high concentrations in fugitive dust areas.
