Fugitive Dust Control

     Fugitive Dust on a construction site can become a serious problem. All California Construction sites must be in compliance with all applicable Fugitive Dust city/county ordinances, AQMD (Air Quality Management District), and State laws. Violation of compliance in any of these Dust Control regulations can result in a large range of penalties starting from fines to civil and even criminal offenses.

What is Fugitive Dust?

     The South Coast Air Quality Management District defines fugitive dust as “any solid particulate matter that becomes airborne, other than that emitted from an exhaust stack, directly or indirectly as a result of the activities of any person”.

Does my site have Fugitive Dust?

     Fugitive Dust can be generated on a construction site by earth-moving activities, demolition, import/export of bulk material, heavy and light duty vehicular movement, landscaping, stockpile handling, and trenching. If your site has the potential to create fugitive dust, let Scott Environmental Health & Safety Services help you stay in compliance.
