Dust Control Program

The 2020 Dust Control website will begin taking applications starting February 18, 2020. The deadline to submit applications for 2020 Dust Control season is May 1, 2020.

On a home computer or laptop fill out the Online Application Form or drop by in person at the Public Works Building located at 10001 - 84 Avenue, Clairmont, AB during regular business hours.

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.


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
  • Commercial - $21.95 per meter

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.
