Dust Control Application

Dust Control Policy

In efforts to ensure public safety, quality of life and reduce road maintenance costs the municipal roads that are dedicated for over dimension loads and/or receive an average traffic count of 200+ vehicles per day.

Average daily traffic counts are based on the official counts conducted by the RM.

The type of dust control suppressant utilized will be determined by the RM in its sole discretion; however, consideration will be given to cost of application, durability/effectiveness, and environmental safety issues.

All requests for Dust Control suppressants that do not meet the principals of this policy will be subject to a fee determined on an annual basis and subject to a deposit of $500.00.

The RM will not guarantee the effectiveness of the dust control suppressant.  Once a dust control suppressant has been applied no refunds will be made.

The RM will determine the appropriate timing to apply the dust control suppressants.

The Rural Municipality of Sherwood No. 159 will provide dust control at no charge along these certain gravel roads for rate-payers whose residence is within 150 meters (500’) from the roadway.

The R. M. of Sherwood Dust Control program is regulated by the Dust Control Policy. Additional application of dust control products is available to residents on a user pay basis.

Dust control is meant to control dust on the roadways, not to eliminate it completely. When dust control products are applied, the substance will adhere to the gravel surface. These products retain moisture (from rain, humidity), which weighs down the dust particles, making them less likely to become airborne after a vehicle has passed over the area.

Residents may apply for additional dust control.  The cost of the dust control to residents varies slightly from year to year depending on the cost of the product from the distributor and the cost of application.
