Dust suppression and control applications are now open for residents and business owners with properties adjacent to gravel roads.

To reduce the amount of gravel dust, the City 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.

Applications are available by searching for a “Dust Suppression Application” in the Permit Library on the City of Grande Prairie website.

The application fee is $440 for residents and $660 for commercial, 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.

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