PWTB 200-1-107 Use of Vegetation to Promote Capture of Fugitive Dust on U.S. Army Installations  


This Public Works Technical Bulletin (PWTB) discusses the use of vegetation for the control and capture of fugitive dust on U.S. Army installations. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) describes fugitive dust as: “Significant atmospheric dust that arises from the mechanical disturbance of granular material exposed to the air. Dust generated from these open sources is termed "fugitive" because it is not discharged to the atmosphere in a confined flow stream.” (USEPA 1972).
