Dust Control Program

The Public Works department is now accepting dust control applications for 2017.

Dust control is the application of a dust suppressant, such as calcium chloride or spec crude oil to gravel roads to minimize road dust. You may request a dust suppressant be applied to the gravel road in front of your residence, rural subdivision, or business. The cost is shared between the County and residential applicants. Fees vary based on the type of suppressant used, length of application, and whether it's for residential or commercial use.

The deadline to submit applications for dust control is April 28, 2017. Either fill out our Online Application Form or fill one out in person at the Public Works Building located at 10001 - 84 Avenue, Clairmont, AB.

Rates

Calcium Applications:

  • Residential Cost/Share - $4.40 per meter
  • Commercial/industrial - $6.60 per meter

Oil Applications:

  • Residential Cost/Share - $19.20 per meter for first 150 meters, $21.95 per meter after 150 meters

Residents who apply in person will receive numbered dust control stakes (put them up right away) to be placed adjacent to the road where they want the dust suppressant applied. Applicants using the online form will have their dust control stakes pegged in by the dust control foreman. The work will begin once spring road bans are lifted and continues until the program is complete.
