Most governmental EPAs, including the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mandate that facilities that generate dust, minimize or mitigate the production of dust in their operation. The most frequent dust control violations occur at new residential housing developments in urban areas.

Control measures include such simple practices as spraying construction and demolition sites with water, and preventing the tracking of dust onto adjacent roads.
