Dust Suppression and Control Applications Now Open
Posted Date: 4/16/2018
Dust suppression and control applications are now open for residents and business owners with properties adjacent to gravel roads.

Once the snow melts and warmer weather dries gravel roads, gravel dust may cause driving hazards. To reduce the amount of gravel dust, Transportation Services sprays a combination of calcium chloride treatment throughout the City on an as-needed basis in the spring and summer seasons.


Residents in rural service areas may apply for a dust suppression and control treatment on a gravel road in sections of at least 100 meters. The application fee is CAD $440 per 100 meters of gravel road.

Although all efforts are made to ensure the treatment is successful, the effectiveness of the dust control agent is not guaranteed and is subject to variables such as weather. Refunds are not applicable once a treatment has been applied.

Further enquiries may be directed to the Citizen Contact Centre at 780-538-0300.
