The deadline to submit online applications for the 2023 Dust Control Season was Sunday, April 30th.

The deadline to complete in person applications at the County Public Works Building was Friday, April 28th 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 + GST

Commercial/Industrial - $6.60 per metre + GST

Oil Applications:

Residential or Commercial - $40 per metre + GST


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.
