Abstract Elutriated cotton dust levels in the picking and garnetting areas of the Atlanta Federal Penitentiary have been significantly reduced by application of cotton dust control systems. Average levels of 250 and 640 micrograms/cubic meter of elutriated dust have been recorded in the picker and garnett rooms respectively. The control systems associated with these levels are discussed with respect to the prison operation and to the proposed cotton dust standard.
