Project Title & Description
Unpaved Roads Study
This grant is to provide assistance to the Desert Research Institute to collect site specific emissions of Particulate Matter 10 (PM10) from unpaved roads in Paso del Norte communities. The results of the project will include: identification and quantification of areas of high PM10 emission from unpaved roads for use in prioritizing emissions reduction; measurement of variations of PM emissions from unpaved roads over two time scales (seasonally) and over the years as an unpaved road ages with use; and determination of control effectiveness of surface treatments that are already in place (e.g. gravel).
