HIGH LEVEL OF DUST – PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT
The R.M. would like to caution motorists to exercise extreme caution on the roads, due to reduced visibility as a result of high dust levels.
As we have not yet received any regular spring moisture to assist, dust levels being experienced are high.
We urge motorists to avoid accidents by following traffic regulations and maintaining a safe, sufficient distance between vehicles especially where dust clouds exist.
We are providing dust control to individuals through our regular dust control program and ensuring adequate coverage of work zones.
DUST CONTROL PROGRAM
The new process for Dust control application whereby ratepayers applied for the application worked very well.
The process identified the areas of concern and allowed targeted application. We received a total of 82 applications.
The new process cut the cost of our Dust Control program by approximately 65%. The process will remain the same for 2016.
