This project is ongoing at Colorado State University to study road dust suppressants with the objective of measuring the relative effectiveness in this semi-arid region as well as any water quality degradation resulting from this usage. Five test sections are being evaluated in this research project -- four treated and one untreated, which serves as control. The data analysis is ongoing and in the final report all detail analysis will be presented.
