Fugitive Dust

Fugitive dust that deposits large particles on buildings, vehicles, and materials is a nuisance. Inhalation of dust can be debilitating, especially when the dust contains toxic elements and minerals. In addition, fugitive dust reduces visibility.

Fugitive dust consists of geological material suspended into the atmosphere by wind action and by human activities. Most of this dust soon deposits within a short distance of its origin, yet a portion of it can be carried many miles by atmospheric winds.
