Abstract: Columbia Missouri is getting bigger in every aspect. From parking lots to mega apartment complexes Columbia is expanding its borders constantly. Because of this rapid growth there are many effects of the construction that takes place daily in multiple regions of this city. The reason for all of the construction is the inflow of people from the surrounding cities and states. More people more cars and more cars means more air-borne pollution. Having a major university in the heart of Columbia does not help the air or soil with a student body of over 35,000. If not corrected, these emissions such as fugitive dust can lead to large problems in our environment.
