Dust Suppression

Clearwater County is now accepting applications for Dust Suppression until May 31, 2021. 

Applications can be filled out in person at the main County office located at 4340 47 Ave, Rocky Mountain House. Hours of operation are from 8:00 am – 4:30 pm Monday to Friday.

There are two options now available for dust suppression products; manufactured oil (SB90), on a three-year contract or calcium chloride applied seasonally.

 Manufactured Oil 

The County will supply a manufactured oil dust suppression for a distance of 150 meters (500 feet) in front of a farmstead, residence, or business on municipal road allowance.

The cost of one manufactured oil dust suppression application is $5,250.00 plus GST. Under current County policy, half (50%) of this cost is borne by the Client, and half (50%) by the County.

Maintenance is performed on an as required basis as determined by County staff. Dust Suppressions will be inspected on a yearly basis to determine what maintenance is required, if any.

"Inactive” (i.e. Dust Suppression not covered under a 3-year agreement) Dust Suppression requiring significant maintenance will be scarified to achieve a pothole free driving surface. This may reduce and, in some cases, eliminate the Dust Suppression. If the Dust Suppression is deemed unsafe for public travel or beyond reasonable maintenance, Clearwater County will revert the site to a gravel condition.

Maintenance will vary from hand patching potholes with cold mix to scarifying and relaying the Dust Suppression. Winter maintenance will be carried out as deemed necessary.
