Dust Information

There is growing concern with the problem of dust in Alaskan communities. Dust can cause and aggravate respiratory and heart conditions. There are many causes of dust: wind-blown dust from glaciers, gravel pits, increased usage of vehicles on dirt roads, dry river beds, and human activity on non-vegetated land.
