Fugitive Dust Control Plan: Daily Weather Report Mobile App
The Fugitive Dust Control Plan: Daily Weather Report mobile app allows you to replace your paper weather report with a smartphone, tablet or computer.
How does it work?
The mobile form includes fields to document items such as date and time, wind direction, daily, hourly and weekly rain, barometric pressure, and wind chill. Once the mobile app is filled out a secure PDF is generated. The PDF is easy to share, and a copy is stored in your account for your dust management records. You can also use the App Builder to personalize and customize this mobile form. Control of dust during periods of subfreezing temperatures is provided largely by natural processes. Snow cover controls dust during a large portion of most winters. On some days without snow cover, adequate moisture exists from past snowfall or liquid precipitation to prevent fugitive dust. Snow or frozen surfaces effectively control wind erosion and vehicle traffic emissions. Additionally, to the extent practicable, snow is moved from coal yard areas where snow cover is not needed to areas of activity. Additionally, attempts are made to limit the size of the area being worked.
