Dust Suppression and Control

 DustGravel roads in our city cause issues with dust. Gravel dust can cause driving hazards, breathing issues and can be a general nuisance. To suppress this dust we use a Calcium Chloride Product sprayed over the gravel surface.

We provide two types of dust suppression services

Gravel roads in the city receive the Calcium Chloride treatment throughout the spring/summer season on an as needed basis.

Residents in our rural service areas can apply to receive dust control treatments to sections of road near their properties for a fee. Click here to download a copy of the Dust Suppression Application.

Scheduling of these treatments are subject to regular dust suppression program priorities and in combination with other requests to maintain cost effectiveness.

Residents must apply for a minimum of 100m length of road way. The width of the treatment will be 7 meters (23 feet). Application fee is $440.00 / 100 meter length of road.

The City of Grande Prairie does not guarantee the effectiveness of the dust control agent. Once treatment is applied no refunds of the application fee will be made.

For further information residents can contact the Citizen Contact Centre at 780-538-0300.
