Dust Control on Gravel Roads
Dust control is a program the County offers to residents on an annual basis to supress dust on gravel roads. Each year an application form can be submitted with payment to the Administration Office.
As per Dust Capping Policy (PDF), any resident wishing to have an application of dust control must submit a completed application form, along with payment of $6.50 per lineal metre plus GST, to the County of Wetaskiwin Administration Office by June 1st.
Applications and payment must be received no later than June 1st of each calendar year. Late applications may not be considered.

County crews will apply calcium chloride after the spring road bans have been lifted and will not be applied after September 1 of each year.
Residents may use a third party contractor to apply dust control in front of their property with approval from the Director of Public Works, or his designate, using a Third Party Dust Control Permit.
Once the Permit has been submitted, the County will review and determine if the application will be approved. If the application is approved, you will be provided with a Permit #.
*The application of dust control onto the roads shall not be permitted after September 1 of each year.*
Residents living in the County of Wetaskiwin and along a gravelled provincial road, can apply to the County for dust control on Provincial Highways at the same rates and conditions effective to local County roads. The County will provide an annual list to Alberta Transportation detailing the work and location of the dust control applications.
The County therefore shall perform the work once formal approval is received from Alberta Transportation for work on their roadways. All other conditions regarding dust control activities on local County roads shall apply.
