Apply for the Dust Suppression Program in Prince Albert

Apply for the Dust Suppression Program in Prince Albert

#Prince Albert #News

Dust suppression involves the application of an emulsified asphalt product to an unpaved, gravel surfaced roadway to provide a nearly dust free driving surface. Residents in Prince Albert can apply to be added to the dust suppression program at a cost to the residents.

Property owners adjacent to unpaved roads and alleys can petition the City to add or remove their block to the Dust Suppression Program. If over 50% of the adjacent property owners (representing more than 50% of the assessable value) petition to add or remove a street from the program, then their block will be added or removed.

To add (or remove) your street to the dust suppression program, contact the Director of Public Works in writing at the following address:
Director of Public Works
1084 Central Avenue, Prince Albert
S6V 7P3

Once finalized, the list of approved blocks will be submitted in a bylaw for City Council approval.

The cost of dust suppression is a follow: 

  • The cost for dust suppression is paid for by residents.
  • The cost to property owners is $1.99 per foot of property abutting treated streets and $1.49 per foot of property abutting treated lanes per application.
  • Roads typically receive two applications per season.
  • Costs have been updated from 2022 to reflect increases in costs of materials.
  • Cost to the resident is calculated based on the length of application abutting the property and will be added to the Property Tax bill for next year.

Dust suppression is a not a permanent solution to manage dust on non-paved roads, but two applications do provide effective seasonal control of dust for residential roads. The deadline to apply to be added to the dust suppression program is April 14, 2023.
