Construction Dust

Comment: Is anyone familiar with rules regarding construction dust? I recall reading somewhere a while back that there must be a continuous stream of water sprayed when bulldozing to keep dust down. I can’t seem to find this online now. The construction site at the corner of S Bedford and Whitworth is not spraying water and the whole street from Pico to Olympic is blanketed with dust for weeks now. Every morning about the time they start working our air purifier goes red for extremely polluted air. We had a large and even closer to us building go up on our street earlier this year and had no where near this level of dust. Anyone else concerned or have ideas on who to call?
