Site development, land clearing, and construction projects often involve expansive earthwork with the potential to generate airborne dust which could impact receptors. Some sites may contain legacy contamination that has uncharacterized hazardous constituents or simply generate harmful quantities of dust that can be harmful to receptors. Developments in densely populated urban environments present challenges for construction companies because of close proximity to inhabitants.
Implementation of perimeter air monitoring is an effective tool to manage risk in these circumstances.
Monitoring the potential off-site migration of dust can limit the liability of developers or contractors. AirLogics dust monitoring equipment accurately and reliably measures and rapidly alerts site managers when high concentrations of dust are generated.
