Dust and dirt from building construction work, mowing when overly dry, landscaping, chemical spray and spray painting can be a nuisance to neighbours and interfere with normal daily activities. If severe enough, it can also damage property and impact on people’s health. This information can help residents and the building industry to reduce dust emissions and meet legal requirements.
