  • Objectives: This study evaluated the effect of construction on ambient PM-10 in the surrounding area. Methods: Four study sites were selected from total AAQMN 11 points in Daegu city. All the four study sites were located near under or completed construction. Mean monthly PM-10 in 2007 to 2013 were analyzed. Results: Impact of residential construction on PM-10 was more obvious than industrial area. PM-10 was positively associated with number of construction near the study site. When there were 2 or 3 construction sites, PM-10 level was higher. Wind direction and the surrounding terrain affected PM-10. Conclusions: Construction has a strong influence on PM-10 in the surrounding Area. Reduce PM-10 there is the need for special construction site management. Proper management is required to minimize fugitive dust in construction sites.
