Use Water Trucks to control Dust on the jobsite

The sight of a construction site is not restricted to just heavy equipment or workers working on the site but you can get to see something more, something that is dangerous in nature and it is huge proportion of dust flying on site. It is pretty natural for a construction site to b dusty but that is also taking its toll on the workers. They are getting vulnerable to various kinds of respiratory ailments which is making them weak from inside. This is a very serious issue and not much is being done to restrict this menace.

Researchers working with human health benefits organizations and other environmental friendly techniques suggest that the growing problem of dust in a construction site can be contained by spraying water which has the potential to settle the dust for some time and the workers can continue with their businesses. Since this idea has been implemented in various construction sites, there has also been a debate on the effectiveness of this method. Many feel that this is only leading to the waste of the most useful natural resource and water is not able to contain the dust for a long time. The moment water is evaporated from the soil; it gets dusty again which means that it is time to sprinkle water again on the ground. This in turn results to wastage of gallons of water just to contain the dust. Moreover, the mechanism used by construction companies to sprinkle water is also questioned.

Most of the companies sprinkle water using large pipes. That only covers a portion of the construction site but not the complete area. It makes no sense to pour water to contain dust only in one particular portion of the site. What is indeed needed is a mechanism that moves all over the site and sprinkles water everywhere so that the land is wet and dust is off the site for few hours. This gives need to the use of water trucks that can go all around the site and do its work. Construction companies are now changing their methods of dust control from using pipes to carrying water in trucks and spraying them all over the site.

These water trucks are specifically designed to carry water and can move on the site. Though they are used precisely for carrying water but can also be used to transport debris from one place to another. They are made to move real slowly so that they do not become the reason of accumulating dust and spraying it all over. They also make use of pipes to spray water but the outlet of the pipe is made in such a way that the water gets sprinkled on the ground thus restricting wastage of water.

Almost all heavy equipment producing companies manufactures water trucks. You can check the website of any such company that is into manufacturing heavy equipment and you will get to see the different models of water trucks produced by them.
