Private Residential Dust Suppression Costs

Historically, private calcium dust suppression services were offered to residents at a subsidized rate. This 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 (please note that prices are subject to change for the 2022 season).

• 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.

County Minute: Infrastructure

"We're finally catching up on our infrastructure, which is nice to see. It took a couple of really wet years we got behind, but we're back at it. We're catching up with incredible crews, incredible people. It's brought us back to just about to the place where we feel that it's acceptable."
