Dust Control

Landowners and businesses in Lethbridge County can apply to have dust control on County-maintained roads adjacent to their properties.

2024 dust control applications are due April 1, 2024.

Click to download application form: 2024 Dust Control Application

This dust suppression program is a 50/50 cost sharing initiative between the County and the applicant.  The applicant is required to pay $6.50 per lineal metre for a minimum length of 100 metres - up to a maximum length of 200 lineal metres, in 50 metre increments.  Dust suppression segments greater than 200 lineal metres will be charged at full cost ($13.00/m) to the applicant.

  • 50 lineal meters will be provided to landowners that do not have more than 50 meters in front of their property. Extensions to existing farm oilings must be at least 100 meters on one side or 50 meters on each side of the oiling.
  • Property owners are encouraged to view the 2024 Base Stabilization Maintenance schedule (coming soon) to determine if Haul Route roads adjacent to their property are identified for dust control application by the County as part of the annual maintenance program. If you are on a haul route but outside of this 2024 service window, please submit an application if you would like dust suppression. 

The applicant is required to enter into an agreement and pay in full with the County prior to any application of dust control. To submit your application and payment, please visit the Lethbridge administration office (#100, 905 4 Ave. S.) during business hours (Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.)

Application of dust control will begin within the first two weeks of June with consideration given to weather, road conditions and supply of material.

In consideration of weather conditions, traffic and road structure, there shall be no warranty period with respect to the performance of the dust control. When deemed necessary, the County will repair unsafe road conditions and return the dust suppression area to a regular gravelled surface.
