Unpaved Traffic Areas

EMISSION SOURCE TYPE:

Fugitive Dust – Unpaved Traffic Areas (Parking Lots, Staging Areas, etc.)

CONTROL TYPE:

BACM

KEY POLLUTANT:

PM10

DESCRIPTION(S):

The following are practices that can be used to reduce PM10 emissions:

Access Restriction: restrict public
access to unpaved traffic areas using signage or physical access
restrictions (e.g., access barrier).

Paving: pave unpaved traffic areas.
(Gives maximum PM10 emissions reductions as long as paved surface is
kept clean.)

Road Treatments: apply water, mulch,
organic materials, polymers, dust suppressants, or wood chips to the
unpaved traffic surface area.

Speed Limits: control speed limits to
15 mph on unpaved areas through worker behavior modification,
signage, or any other necessary means.

Surface Modification: Cover unpaved
surfaces with a low silt-content material, such as gravel or recycled
road base.

Track-Out Prevention: check or clean
the underside of all haul trucks before leaving the parking or
staging area.

Vegetation: establish natural
vegetation on unpaved surfaces no longer being used.

Wind Barrier: plant trees or establish
other barriers on the typically upwind side of the traffic area to
minimize windblown dust from the unpaved surface.
