The 2021 Dust Control website started taking applications on January 18, 2021.
The deadline to submit applications for the 2021 Dust Control Season was May 7, 2021 at 4:30 p.m.

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
  • Business

The cost to apply dust control is shared between the County and applicant. Fees vary based on the type of suppressant used, length of application, and whether it is for residential or commercial use.


Calcium Applications:

Residential Cost/Share - $4.40 per metre

Commercial/Industrial - $6.60 per metre

Oil Applications:

Residential Cost/Share - $19.20 per metre for first 150 metres, $21.95 per metre after 150 metres

Commercial/Industrial - $21.95 per metre

All locations will be staked by the County dust control foreman.

The work will begin once spring road bans are lifted and continues until the program is complete.
