Describes methods of controlling contaminated fugitive dust originating from contaminated land surfaces. The contaminated dust may be released by three basic mechanisms: vehicle reentrainment, cleanup activities, and wind erosion. Different dust suppressant techniques are used to treat each mechanism.
