This report describes a research project conducted at Colorado State University to evaluate the relative effectiveness and environmental impact of road dust suppressants. The objectives were to develop a device that would provide a standard, quantitative and precise method of measuring dust from unpaved road surfaces; to evaluate the relative effectiveness of the different dust suppressants in common use and to assess the environmental impact in terms of possible water quality effects resulting from the use of the different dust suppressants.
