Abstract:

As contributors to air pollution, construction projects in general have been largely ignored in the United States. The Air Force is interested in taking efforts to reduce construction-generated pollution. This paper introduces the reader to air pollution and the causes and effects of common pollutants. The two sources of pollution that are specifically associated with construction are then identified, and methods of minimizing those sources of pollution are proposed. Finally, a number of contract clauses that may be incorporated into Air Force construction contracts are included for consideration.
