Gravel utilized as surfacing material for secondary roads in El Paso County, Colorado contains microscopic paticulates. The particulates, agitated into an airborne state by automobiles, represent a potentially hazardous air pollutant to the public. The airborne particulate level observed as a result of paving Ehrich Street, Colorado Springs, Colorado was reduced 1700 times by weight. The remaining airborned particulate matter is believed to be carried to the Ehrich Street area by mountain winds from Rampart Range. Author
