Impacts of dust suppressant application on the quality of urban runoff from disturbed lands
The effects of dust suppressant application on the quality of urban runoff were evaluated in this research. Six different dust suppressants were applied to experimental disturbed land plots in the Las Vegas Valley. Rainfall events were simulated on the dust-suppressant treated plots and the quality of the runoff emanating from the plots was examined. Parameters evaluated in the runoff include, volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds, organic pesticides, metals, coliform, biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), total solids (TS), total volatile solids (TVS), total suspended solids (TSS), total dissolved solids (TDS), turbidity, total organic carbon (TOC), pH, alkalinity, chemical oxygen demand (COD), hardness, nitrate, ammonia, phosphate, sulfide, sulfate, cyanide, and chloride.
