The way in which a site is prepared and maintained can have a significant impact on the control of dust and emissions.
When planning their construction works developers should aim to:
Ã¢ÂÂ¢ Locate machinery and dust generating activities away from receptors;
Ã¢ÂÂ¢ Create a physical distance and/or barrier between dust/emission generating activities and receptors;
Ã¢ÂÂ¢ Install solid screens or barriers around dust generating activities. These should be at least as high as any stockpiles onsite;
Ã¢ÂÂ¢ Cover or seed stockpiles to prevent wind whipping; and
Ã¢ÂÂ¢ Remove loose materials as soon as possible.
