Dust Control

In an effort to provide relief from dusty roads and improve stabilization and maintenance of County roads, Pottawatomie County has established a Dust Control Program

2021 County-Applied Dust Control

Dust control is applied annually in May and June, as weather permits.

Dust Control Application

In addition to County-applied dust control, dust control is available on additional sections of gravel roads for a fee. Applications are accepted through April 1, 2021. Applications will not be accepted after this date. 

2021 Dust Control Application

Dust Control Program

Pottawatomie County has established a program whereby the residents pay a portion to apply a portion of the dust control treatment. 

In 2021, applicants will be 100% of the material cost. Minimum application length of 500 linear feet is $415.00, then $0.83 per each additional linear foot. County policy dictates that checks be cashed upon receipt of the application.

Any County resident who desires dust control must complete the Dust Control Application and pay the total amount due by the application deadline of April 1, 2021. Residents are required to mark the area being treated (flags, posts, etc) showing starting and ending points. The total feet of dust control must be continuous, per requested area, unless within a concentrated subdivision. 

Dust control is applied between May 1 and July 15, based on weather conditions, availability of materials, and scheduling as determined by the County.

Pottawatomie County maintains the roadway, including periodic grading, as necessary regardless of dust control application.

The effectiveness of dust control may vary with weather conditions and traffic volume. Pottawatomie County will not be held accountable for its performance.
