RE: Sand and dust blowing from parking lot

Marvin Jarrett of our Process & Prevention Services Team suggests the

Incorporate a slaked calcium oxide source into the sand with water. This
could be a waste material.  This should form a hardened mass especially
if rolled down and allowed to set.  If it does set on a small test, use
about 5% slaked lime, 10% pulverized coal fly ash (pozzolanic type), and
85% sand. Disc in, moisten well, and roll it down.  Using 10-15% high
calcium oxide pulverized coal fly ash (type C) may also work with water
and the sand.
