Take a deep breath. Even when the air looks clear, it’s nearly certain that you’ll inhale tens of millions of solid particles, liquid droplets and dust, also known as particulate matter, that has potential human health effects. Did you know that blowing sand and dust can cause respiratory health problems and damage property?
In the High Desert, high winds blowing dust for miles around can be a common sight. Major sources of particulate matter dust include disturbed vacant lands, unpaved roads, diesel trucks, construction sites, and off-road vehicle activities. The undisturbed desert is stable and not a source of blowing dust, so it is important not to grade or disturb land unnecessarily.
Can you create a poster which shows how people can “Bust the Dust” and help protect the health and the air we breath? To find out more about how you can prevent dust from blowing, go to: “Dust Projects”.
