8:30 am - 12:30 pm
LV Eberhard Center, Grand Rapids, Michigan

Fugitive dust from roads, surface lots, storage piles, and other sources contributes to air pollution. Additionally, asbestos from demolition activities can present environmental concerns if not properly handled.  The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality is presenting the Dust Management Workshop to provide information on how to control fugitive dust at public and private facilities, lots, and roads, as well as dust management at  demolition sites. 

To help comply with environmental requirements relating to fugitive dust, attendees will receive an overview of particulate matter and fugitive dust regulations, and related health issues.  The workshop will also provide a profile of dust control methods, approaches for developing solid fugitive dust plans, and success stories on dust management such as the use of Detroit’s wet-wet method.

Attendees of this workshop will receive both the Managing Fugitive Dust, A Guide for Compliance with the Air Regulatory Requirements for Particulate Matter Generation and the Michigan Environmental Compliance Guide for Nonmetallic Mineral Crushing Facilities guidebooks.

This workshop is recommended for anyone dealing with fugitive dust issues, including:
  • municipal, county, or state road repair and maintenance.
  • zoning board or local responsibility for site location, selection, or approval.
