Private Residential Dust Suppression Costs for 2021
Lac Ste. Anne County will continue to offer the same dust control program that was offered in 2020. Historically, the service was offered to the residents for private dust control at a subsidized rate, the program was reworked in 2019 to make it fair and equitable, and to avoid any budget implications. At this time, two dust applications are available:
• Purchasing Calcium with a gravel application = $877 + GST/100 meters (minimum)
• Purchasing Calcium without a gravel application= $558 + GST/100 meters (minimum)
It is the Applicant’s responsibility to notify the Lac Ste. Anne County Public Works Department, via application, which option is preferable. In an effort to reduce cost, Lac Ste. Anne County will be applying all County-chosen locations (intersections most susceptible to washboard) without a gravel application.
