Lacombe County will arrange for dust control on roads in front of a residence with Thirty Three and One Third (33 1/3%) percent of the costs for road preparation, dust treatment and application to be paid by the applicant. The resident will have their choice of calcium chloride or blade mix oil as dust treatment.
The cost will be actual cost per lineal meter. Payment must be made in advance when the request for dust treatment is submitted. Requests are to be submitted by May 15th to Lacombe County Operations with advice on the number of meters and legal location. Please flag the location of dust treatment you are requesting by the end of May.
2013 Ratepayer’s Cost for Dust Treatment on Lacombe County Roads:
MC30 or MC 250(Oil) Lacombe County Ratepayer’s cost is $20.53 per lineal meter
Calcium Chloride Lacombe County Ratepayer’s cost is $2.62 per lineal meter
MC250 or MC30 (oil) will only be considered if there is a demand for the product (i.e. a minimum truck load per area)
The length of the dust treatment provided for under the County’s new policy is limited to 200 meters (please refer to Policy OP (6) Dust Control dated August 25, 2011)
Dust treatment can only be undertaken when approximately ten (10) applications in an area have accumulated. If an insufficient number of applications are received and dust treatment cannot be undertaken, the applicants’ payment will be refunded. Lacombe County will be responsible for erecting proper signage.
Any individual may arrange, subject to approval by the Public Works Supervisor, for his own dust treatment. The material must be evenly applied by use of a spray bar or similar mechanism, and must meet disposal requirements of Alberta Environmental Protection.
The County will apply dust treatment on roads within hamlets and subdivisions at no charge if severe dust conditions exist resulting from heavy traffic.
Where dust control is a requirement of a development permit or agreement the party may apply dust control for up to 200 meters per residence. If the distance required is greater than 200 meters the party shall be responsible for 100% of the cost in excess of 200 meters.
Dust treatment will be undertaken commencing May 15th or any other such time as may be suitable (subject to weather conditions).
The dust treatment will not be undertaken if a majority of the local property owners request that no dust treatment be done.
